Bayern bids a legend Farewell

Farewell To The KingIt's official. Oliver Kahn will step down as Bayern's keeper and retire from football this year. The announcement came today from Bayern’s director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Among his achievements, Kahn was voted the best player of the World Cup in 2002, seven German championships, five German cups, the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup. He was also the first choice keeper for Germany's National Team from 1994 until 2006 where Jens Lehmann took over. His last professional game will be played on May 27th in India. In September, Bayern will honor him with a game at the Olympiastadion where Bayern will take on the German National Team. Which should be interesting considering a lot of the line up for the NT currently plays for the FCB.

His character, passion, anger, and personality will be missed.
