    Philipp Lahm announced his retirement!

    I never liked German league or national team (definitely had to do with Holland of 1974) but there are few German footballers that I admire and he is one of them. Best of luck to him.

    I loved watching Philip Lahm play because he was one of the best defenders in the game. Also, not too many players get to retire with a club like Bayern Munchen. Even during the twilight of his career, he was still playing at a very competitive level. He is going to be missed at Die Mannschaft and Bayern Munchen. Philip Lahm is a BOSS. There is not much he did not do in his career, including hoisting up the World Cup.

    Everything you guys mentioned is true and what separates Lahm from the rest was his work ethic and attention to detail on defense. Of course Lahm was talented, one cannot play at that level without talent but he put his head down and put in work. Lahm took his lunch box and hard hat to work every day. He was not a flashy player but he was an anchor of the defensive line. The Bayern Munchen youth can retire with his team, it would have been terrible if he retired with another team or went to a lower league, just to collect a paycheck. Lahm is not that guy. He is 33 years old now and Lahm was coming off the bench. The man is a private guy so he can go back to what is important, his family. Good for you my friend take a bow.
