FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Former Germany and Cologne striker Dieter Mueller, whose six goals in a game are still a Bundesliga record, is in a coma following a heart attack.

His former club Kickers Offenbach says Mueller, 58, collapsed at his home near Frankfurt and was revived by his wife before the arrival of the ambulance.

Mueller scored six goals for Cologne in a 7-2 win over Werder Bremen in 1977, a Bundesliga individual record. Muller scored 231 in 326 matches for Cologne and was the league's top scorer in 1977 and 1978, when Cologne won the championship. He had nine goals in 12 games for Germany.

Mueller also won French league titles with Bordeaux in 1984 and 1985.
