Bayern Munich Captain Philip Lahm, 33, who in 2014 guided Germany to World Cup glory has decide to call it quits from the game of football after making his 501st appearance for Bayern Munich on Tuesday night in the German cup against Wolfsburg.
‘I will end my career at the end of season,’ Lahm told reporters. ‘I have informed club officials about my decision. I can continue with my leadership style, giving my best every day, in every training, until the end of the season. I can keep doing it this season but not beyond,’ he said.
‘There were talks, and in the end I decided it’s not the right time for me to take up a new position at Bayern.’
