Bayern Munich striker Ademilson
has broken Gerd Muller
's record for most amount of goals scored in a single Bundesliga season.
He bagged a brace in a 4-0 win against Nurnberg yesterday and this has taken his Bundesliga goal tally to 42 goals, beating Muller's previous record of 40 in 1971.
It has been a fantastic year for the sensational Brazilian, who was brought to the Allianz Arena from Sao Paulo last January, with manager David Beckham
breaking the bank and paying 48 million to sign him.
However, he has repaid that debt with his 51 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions this season.
"Gerd Muller was the best player in the world so for Ademilson to break his record of goals is really, really amazing," said Beckham. "I can't really quite believe it myself. The amount of goals he's scored this season is truly terrific and I can only hope he will stay the same next season. He is exactly the reason why we are still in the running for a quadruple."
Aside from Ademilson's personal record, Bayern Munich also broke a team record of their own - with the team scoring a total of 105 goals in the Bundesliga this season. The previous league record, also set by Die Bayern, was 101.
