Former Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Basler has urged the club to drop Thomas Muller from their roster, arguing the German is not in top form.

German champions Bayern Munich have had a rocky start to their 2022-23 Bundesliga campaign. Julian Nagelsmann’s side have collected just 12 points from seven league games, winning three, drawing three and losing once. Prior to the international break, Bayern dropped points in four consecutive matches and slipped to fifth in the league table.

Basler, who scored in the 1999 Champions League final loss to Manchester United (3-2), claimed seniority had clouded Nagelsmann’s judgement. The German has claimed the stalwart Muller is no longer fit to start any more games for Bayern, urging Nagelsmann to pick Serge Gnabry over him. Speaking to German outlet tz, Basler slammed Muller, saying:

“A Thomas Müller who is completely out of shape – with him!”

“Nagelsmann should give Serge Gnabry a chance and not always those who have been at Bayern for 20 years.”

Muller has appeared in all seven Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich this season, scoring once and claiming two assists. Gnabry, meanwhile, has scored two goals and provided two assists in seven Bundesliga appearances this season.

Mario Basler claims Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is better than Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller

After urging Nagelsmann to drop Muller, Basler questioned the merit of Muller’s presence in the German national team. Basler claimed Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan was a better player and backed Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane and Kai Havertz to start ahead of Muller at the 2022 World Cup.

Basler continued on tz:

“In terms of football, Ilkay Gündogan is a class better than Thomas Müller.”

He added:

“Musiala and Sané have to play, Kai Havertz is also up front for me. I think Müller’s form at the World Cup, in big games, is not what it used to be.”

The 2014 World Cup winner has appeared in 116 games for Germany in all competitions so far, scoring 44 goals and providing 40 assists. Muller has a phenomenal record at the World Cup, having netted 10 goals and six assists in 16 appearances so far.
