Philipp Lahm Retirement


Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm : "I'm looking forward to retirement"

bundesliga.com: You have won both the World Cup and the Champions League. Which title is more valuable to you?
Lahm: First of all, every Bundesliga title has been something special. It sounds like a cliché to say it's the most 'honest' title because you win it over the course of a year, but it's true. I think the World Cup and Champions League triumphs are on the same level. Lifting the World Cup trophy aloft in the Maracana – and doing so as captain – was an indescribable feeling. It was an honour to lead the team as captain. We won the Champions League with Bayern, my hometown club. That was something else.

bundesliga.com: You have never been sent off in your entire career…
Lahm: Let me put it this way: I've always made an effort to play by the rules.

bundesliga.com: Here comes the most difficult question…
Lahm: [Laughs] Now I'm curious…

bundesliga.com: What are you most looking forward to on the first day after you retire?
Lahm: [Laughs] That's not difficult. I'm looking forward to simple things, like just having a normal day with my family. Having breakfast together and doing everything you do as a family.

He is a great sporting figure, and his success - from the triumph at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil to the record of eight German championships and the "Treble" of 2013 - speaks for itself. In addition, Philipp Lahm as a fair sportsman who was always a model, especially for his many young fans, who seek to emulate him."
