Philipp Lahm Has Announced He's Retiring At The End Of The Season

Bayern Munich legend Phillip Lahm is set for retirement at the end of the season and is expected to take up a management role, according to German publication Kicker.

"Uli Hoeneß and I have held open, intensive and constructive talks with Philipp in recent months about a possible position as sporting director of our club", he said.

"FC Bayern München is surprised by the approach of Philipp Lahm and his adviser".

Lahm came through Bayern's youth ranks and has only ever played for one other club, Stuggart. Furthermore, after Bernd Schneider's substitution during the second half, Lahm took the captain's armband for the first time and helped the Nationalmannschaft become the first team to win at the new Wembley Stadium.

Bayern Munich star Philipp Lahm has announced he will officially retire at the end of this season, according to Alex Richards of the Daily Mirror.

He's also made one appearance for Germany, albeit in a fun ol' run around against San Marino late a year ago.

"I had thought about taking this decision last season, but then I had to test myself, my ability to go on".

"I've been considering it for more than the past year".

"I have told the club I will stop playing at the end of the season. I can keep doing it this season, but not beyond", said the German International to the reporters after their German Cup victory over Wolfsburg. Having cut his teeth in Bundesliga football during a two-year loan spell at Stuttgart, he made his senior debut for Bayern in 2005 and never looked back.

Lahm earned 113 caps for Germany before retiring from global play after captaining his country to a World Cup title in 2014.
