Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt, team doctor of Bayern Munich, will leave the German giants after spending 43 years with the Bundesliga champions.
The 77-year-old, who had worked at the club since 1977 and nicknamed “Mull”, Mueller-Wohlfahrt was also the German national team doctor between 1995 and 2018.
Bayern Munich chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, in a statement stated that Mueller-Wohlfahrt had done “an excellent job” at the club, “setting a worldwide standard in sports medicine”.
He added: “The whole club and generations of players – from Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Mueller via Klaus Augenthaler and Bastian Schweinsteiger to Thomas Mueller and Robert Lewandowski – owe Mull their greatest thanks.”
The physician, while speaking on the development, said: “When I look back on my forty years at Bayern Munich, I’m happy and very satisfied”.
He added: “The experiences we had here together, the successes we celebrated together and above all the people I met at this club have had a lasting impact on my life.”
