Examples of Muller in a Sentence

  1. Bayern Munich:

    His achievements are unrivaled to this day, as a player and a person, Gerd Müller stands for FC Bayern and its development into one of the biggest clubs in the world like no other.

  2. Intelligence Committee:

    I am fairly realistic about the degree to which any single hearing, any single witness can really move the country in a particular direction, people are quite dug in on their views of Trump and Russia, and more generally just on their views of this President. If the racist display by the President last week wasn't enough to change attitudes, I don't know that anything Bob Muller has to say will.

  3. Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge:

    There are some players who just don't have any price tag, we would be out of our minds to sell Thomas Muller priceless.

  4. Daniel Roth:

    With regards to the job itself, it looks like Müller will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor at UNIDO. China’s Li Yong continued funding Iran projects every single year during his eight-year term and clearly enjoyed good relations with Tehran, since Germany nominated him as its candidate, Müller has given no indication that he is concerned about dangerous tech getting into Iranian hands via UNIDO. Nor has he hinted that the existing programs will be reviewed. Bearing in mind Germany’s poor record when it comes to selling dual-use tech to rogue regimes, one would hope that Müller – as a senior German minister – would be especially determined to resolve these problems.
