Bayern Munich induct retiring Lahm into Hall of Fame

Bayern Munich skipper Philipp Lahm admits coaching role is unlikely The 33-year-old will bring his 15-year top-flight playing career to a close on Saturday

All the major success that Germany accomplished couldn't be imagined without a fantastic left back. He is also a Champions League, a German Cup and a World cup victor for Bayern Munich and Germany.

The former Spanish global ended a 16-year playing career whilst playing for Bayern Munich this weekend.

"Since my first day at Bayern I've felt very good here". Having experienced German football's nadir at first hand in Portugal in 2004, it was fitting that Lahm should hoist the World Cup aloft in the Maracana ten years later - the culmination of a German football revolution which Philipp Lahm has personified. Football is going to miss one of the best players ever.

He captained both club and country during his career and remained a crucial player for both teams throughout.

"He deserves this accolade, which puts him up there with the greats of Bayern".

The time from 2013 to 2016 saw Bayern Munich skipper playing in the No. 6 role in the midfield, while there were occasions when he was also seen dealing with opposition as one of the central defenders and vividly as an advanced right winger too.

Aside from being one of - if not the - finest goalkeeper of his generation, Buffon has consistently been one of the most respected and admired footballers around because the Italian legend just oozes class.

He won the Champions League titles with Liverpool, on that unforgettable night in Istanbul, then nine years later when Real Madrid won "la Decima" - a 10 European Cup title - in the 2014 Lisbon final. Bayern Munich has won 29 out of 34 matches this season, with 14 home and 15 away wins compared with Freiberg's 14 wins, six home and five away. Darmstadt and Ingolstadt are already relegated, and Stuttgart and Hannover are all but certain to take their place from the second division.
