Bundesliga Bundesliga 2


Leverkusen's Heung Min Son (r.) scored his 25th and 26th Bundesliga goals against Nürnberg on Matchday 14. At the age of just 21 years, 4 months and 22 days, Son became the youngest player since Olaf Thon in 1987 to reach 25 goals. <b>bundesliga.com</b> brings you the ten youngest entrants to the 25-goal club Werner Weist (r.) was a touch younger than Son at 21 years and ten days. On 21 March 1970, Weist scored his 25th goal in the famous yellow and black of Borussia Dortmund, netting a total of 87 times in 217 appearances for BVB and Werder Bremen (© Imago) On 29 October 1966, Gerd <i>der Bomber</i> Müller scored his 25th Bundesliga goal at the age of 20 years, 11 months and 26 days. He would go on to claim the <i>Torkanone</i> award for the season's top goalscorer, and the FC Bayern star's career brought him a mind-boggling 365 goals, a Bundesliga record to this day (© Imago) On 14 April 1987, Olaf Thon (l.) hit the net for the 25th time at the tender age of 20 years, 11 months and 13 days. The 1990 World Cup winner with <br> Germany would go on to lift the DFB Cup and UEFA Cup with FC Schalke 04 (© Imago) At just 20 years, nine months and 30 days young, Uli Hoeneß (l.) scored his 25th league goal on 4 November 1972 against <br> Bayer 04 Leverkusen. That season, his goals would help FC Bayern to the Bundesliga title (© Imago) Rainer Budde (r.) of MSV Duisburg was even younger than Hoeneß when he reached the 25-goal mark, courtesy of this effort against <br> Bayern's Sepp Maier (l.). He was a mere 20 years, eight months and seven days old (© Imago) Walter Bechtold was just 11 days younger that Budde – 20 years, eight months and six days old –  when he hit the net for the 25th time in the Bundesliga with <br> Eintracht Frankfurt. He later transferred from the Eagles to Kickers Offenbach and won the DFB Cup (© Imago) Dieter Müller (l.), the 1. FC Köln striker, scored his 25th goal on 16 November 1974 at the age of <br >20 years, seven months and 15 days. In total, he scored 149 times for the Billy-Goats (© Imago) On 21 April 1984, Herbert Waas reached 25 Bundesliga goals in the colours of Leverkusen. The man in whose <i>Werkself</i> footsteps Heung Min <br> Son is now following also lifted one of Leverkusen's only two major trophies: the UEFA Cup in 1988 (© Imago) He may have been better known for his overhead kicks, but TSV 1860 Munich's Klaus Fischer (l.) was just as lethal in a conventional fashion. Aged only 20 years, two months and eight days, he scored his 25th Bundesliga goal, while his career, later spent at Schalke, brought him a total of 268 strikes (© Imago) And finally, we have to go back a long way to discover the youngest scorer of 25 Bundesliga goals. VfB Stuttgart's Horst Köppel (l.) managed the feat on 18 May 1968 against Borussia Mönchengladbach, one day shy of his 20th birthday. Impressive numbers, young man! (© Imago)
