Muller 'delighted' for Messi

Gerd Muller says he is "delighted" for Lionel Messi after the Argentine superstar broke his record of most goals scored in a calendar year.

Messi surpassed Muller's tally of 85 goals he scored for Bayern Munich and West Germany in 1972.

The milestone had stood for 40 years before the Barcelona forward scored a double in the 2-1 victory over Real Betis on Sunday night.

And Muller led the tributes on Monday, telling Sport1: "My record stood for 40 years - 85 goals in 60 games - and now the best player in the world has broken it, and I'm delighted for him.

"He is an incredible player, gigantic. He's such a nice and modest professional and I hope he gets one or two more goals in 2012 and that he can then hold onto the record for the next 40 years.

"He's fantastic. He only has one defect and that is that he doesn't play for Bayern Munich!"
