Before Phillip Lahm’s last match with Bayern Munich on Saturday against SC Freiburg, the club has announced that the long-time FCB and Germany captain will be the first player to be inducted into FC Bayern Hall of Fame since Oliver Kahn in 2008.
He will therefore stand alongside the greatest players such as Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Sepp Maier, Paul Breitner, Uli Hoeneß, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Lothar Matthäus, Franz "Bulle" Roth, Bixente Lizarazu, Mehmet Scholl, Klaus Augenthaler to have ever played for the record champions.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Phillip Lahm being inducted into the FC Bayern Hall of Fame:
“Philipp Lahm is one of the most deserving players in the recent history of FC Bayern. Both on the pitch and off it in his role as captain, he has been a truly important person for the club. He deserves this accolade, which puts him up there with the greats of FC Bayern. The club would like to thank Philipp Lahm for the amazing performances he has shown for FC Bayern.”
With Bayern Munich, Phillip Lahm has won eight Bundesliga titles, six German cups, three DFL-Supercups, the DFL-Ligapokal, the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Lahm will make his 517th appearance for the club at the Allianz Arena this weekend to bring his 15-year top-flight playing career to a close. In his 10-year international career, Lahm made 113 appearances for Germany and lifted the FIFA World Cup Trophy in 2014.
There’s only 1 thing left to say: Thank you Philipp Lahm, a player who won it all and left as a champion!
