The moment that Pep Guardiola stepped on the grass at Säbener Straße he found the player that he would target to push the club forward on and off the field. That player was club captain Philipp Lahm.

With debilitating injuries to the club's midfielders, Guardiola turned to Lahm to put his fullback past behind him and anchor the center of the field. As expected, Lahm was brilliant, and Pep's faith in his captain was rewarded.

It was always going to be interesting to see what Lahm had to say with Pep Guardiola departing Munich for Manchester City. Today, on the morning of the UEFA Champions League Final in Milan between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, Lahm took to his Instagram account to key a brief letter to Pep.

Dear Pep, normally we would have one more game to play in Milan tonight. As a team we have reached all our goals. Winning the UEFA Champions League is the only dream that remains unfulfilled. Nevertheless, the past three years have been a success, it was an honor working with you. On behalf of the entire team we’d like to wish you all the best for your future!
