Lahm Announced Retirement from International Football

Winning the World Cup 2014 seem to be considered as the ultimate glory by Philipp Lahm as Germany’s captain on that tournament has decided to end his international career after that success.

Lahm’s decision to quit the national side has also been confirmed by German Football Association (DFB), while the player himself released an open letter revealing his joy being able to end his international career with a World Cup glory.

Still at the age of 30, many football fans were expecting that Lahm will lead Germany in the upcoming Euro 2016, but apparently that’s not  the case now as the player has made up his mind.

The full back will now set his focus on club level with Bayern Munich since he already signed a contract extension until 2018 with the Bundesliga champion.

A positive news indeed for Bayern and their head coach, Pep Guardiola, as he can maximize Lahm to give his best for the club since there will be no international football disturbing the skipper.
