There is more than meets the eye with Wanderers new signing Nicolai Muller.
The 32-year-old former German international has signed on as an injury replacement for Radoslaw Majewski, who has been sidelined with an injury.
Muller comes to the club with fantastic credentials having spent 18 seasons playing in Germany, first in the 2.Bundesliga then in the Bundesliga with Mainz O5, Hamburger SV and Eintracht Frankfurt, the club where he started his junior career in 1998.
The bulk of his senior career has been in the top league in Germany where he played 185 games and notched 40 goals. All up he has played 349 games with 78 goals in his professional career to date.
Muller, who can play as a winger or second striker, was capped for Germany in 2013 when he came on to replace Lukas Podolski in a friendly against Ecuador in Boca Raton, Florida.
The attacker showed outstanding commitment to come back from an ACL injury while playing for Hamburger SV in the opening game of the 2017/18 season. Muller scored against FC Augsburg, then raced to the corner flag to celebrate only to twist his knee in the process.
Muller made his comeback later in the season against Eintracht Frankfurt, a club he would return to at the beginning of the following season.
Muller managed just seven games for Eintracht, scoring twice. However, he made three appearances for the club in the Europa League that season as the Germans bowed out in the semi-final stage.
A loan spell then followed in December 2018 to Hannover 96, where he played 4 games and scored three goals. Muller counted Wanderers midfielder Pirmin Schwegler as a teammate over at Hannover last season.
Muller signing gives the Wanderers a distinct German presence as he joins countrymen head coach Markus Babbel, defender Patrick Ziegler and striker Alex Meier on the Wanderers books.
