Six players were recently inducted into the Hall of Fame of German Football and of those, three were Bayern Munich players: Miroslav Klose, Philipp Lahm, and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Here’s what they had to say after their induction:

Klose: To be there among these great players and idols is fantastic. For me, being inducted into the Hall of Fame is one of the highest honours you can receive as an athlete and a nice confirmation of your achievements at a high level over many years.

Lahm: It’s an incredible honour to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I’m grateful to my teammates, coaches and everyone who helped me receive this extraordinary award.

Rummenigge: “After being inducted into the Hall of Fame in Italy last year, I feel very honored to now also be inducted in Germany. When you read the names of the members, many memories come back. Franz Beckenbauer, one of my first mentors, with whom I spent decades together at FC Bayern, as well as Gerd Müller, from whom I was able to learn so much, Paul Breitner, my wonderful partner during the ‘Breitnigge’ days and Udo Lattek, my first coach, who had a unique ability to form a group of outstanding individuals into a great team”.

Well done you absolute legends!
