40. Roque Santa Cruz
Although never a great goalscorer for Bayern during his 10 years at the club, the Paraguayan striker was incredibly instrumental at winning games and picking up trophies. Despite only scoring an average of six goals a season, he won five Bundesliga titles at the club as well as a Champions League trophy.
39. Miroslav Klose
Still regarded as a mainstay in the German national team, Miroslav Klose was a class act in front of goal for Bayern between 2007 and 2011, scoring 52 goals over the course of his four seasons at the club. In that time he won five major trophies and reached the Champions League final.
38. Cristian Nerlinger
An emphatic goal-scoring midfielder who'll always be remembered for his intelligence on the ball and the role he played in that famous Bayern side of the '90s. The high point will of course be the side's UEFA Cup win over Bordeaux in 1996, in which Nerlinger played a vital part in helping Bayern achieve such a feat.
37. Werner Olk
One of Bayern's most famous captains prior to the Golden age of the mid-'70s, Olk played 266 times for the first team as the club moved up the divisions from the Oberliga Süd to the German Bundesliga. His honours include three DFB Pokal cups, one Bundesliga title and a solitary award for the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1967.
36. Claudio Pizarro
As the second current Bayern player on the list, Pizarro is well remembered for his earlier stint at the club in which he scored 101 goals over the course of just six seasons, making him the most prolific ever goalscorer for a foreigner in the Bundesliga. While at Bayern, he has picked up eight domestic trophies as well as last season's Champions League trophy.
35. Roy Makaay
Another foreign striker who felt right at home in Munich was Dutch forward Roy Makaay who scored 102 goals in 178 games for Bayern Munich. Famously signed after scoring a hat-trick against Bayern for Deportivo in the 2002-03 Champions League, Makaay put his goal scoring to good use in Germany, picking up four domestic titles in as many years.
34. Owen Hargreaves
Still only the second Englishman to win a Champions League trophy with a foreign club, Owen Hargreaves may as well be regarded as German when we consider his upbringing at the club. Coming through the youth teams, Hargreaves made a total of 145 senior appearances for the club, winning four Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokal trophies and the Champions League in 2001 before moving on to Manchester United.
33. Mario Basler
A wonderfully gifted winger who perhaps didn't win as much as a player of his calibre should have, yet what Basler did at Bayern during his brief spell at the club was simply marvellous. He won two Bundesliga titles and a DFB Pokal Cup in as may seasons at the club but will perhaps be best remembered for that wonderful free-kick to open the scoring against Manchester United in that fateful Champions League final in 1999.
32. Markus Babbel
Again, another player perhaps more notable to our English readers for his success in the Premier League, yet Markus Babbel was a very good Bayern Munich player before he made the move. In six seasons the powerful full-back won three Bundesliga titles and a UEFA Cup trophy in 1996, as well as a runners-up medal in the aforementioned Champions League final in 1999.
31. Jens Jeremies
The formidable defensive midfielder who made 180 appearances for Bayern during the late nineties until the mid noughties. Although he missed out on the ultimate prize in 2001 after being suspended for the Champions League final, he was still invaluable to the side reaching such a stage, and won his fair share of trophies elsewhere for Bayern throughout his time at the club.
