Lionel Messi has sent a signed Barcelona shirt to former Bayern Munich striker Gerd Mueller, whose scoring record he broke last year.

Bayern released a photograph Thursday with Mueller holding the shirt. Messi wrote on the shirt: "To Gerd Mueller, with respect and admiration, a hug.''

Messi scored 91 goals last year, breaking Mueller's 40-year-old record. Mueller scored 85 goals in 1972.

Messi received a record fourth FIFA Player of the Year award earlier this month.
