Bundesliga’s Youtube channel pays tribute to Philip Lahm after he retires from Germany duty

Regardless of whether or not Germany won the World Cup in Brazil, it wouldn’t have affected Philip Lahm’s status as a legend.

The right-back, who Pep Guardiola called the most intelligent player he’d ever worked with, incidentally did help Germany to a first World Cup in 24 years, lifting the trophy as captain.

It’s a hard achievement to follow and Lahm obviously felt that there would be no better time to stop playing international football, retiring from German duty today.

Players, journalists and fans alike have thanked him for his services and the Bundesliga’s official Youtube channel did the same thing, posting a video to mark the occasion below
