As the young man Lame at the 13. November 2002 was a substitute in the meaningless Champions League game of the former Munich against RC Lens, no one could know how great this career would be. Eight German Championships, six DFB Cup victories, the success in the Club world Cup in 2013, and is the crown of the club career of the Champions-League-Triumph 2013 in the unique Vita Lahm. “I’ve never played for any records.

Typical Of The Lame. The 33-Year-old has always been a self best always, and so the career is the end of a year before his contract expired almost. Now he steps back in a strong Position, even if coach Carlo Ancelotti would like to have as the “new Paolo Maldini” up to the age of 40 years on the place keep. But not ticking Lame. Money at the end of à la Bastian earn in a men’s League or a career Schweinsteiger in the United States are not eligible for the entrepreneurs to over 500 Bayern Play in question. Now Lahm is involved in a number of companies, so, for example, as a shareholder of the cereal manufacturer sněžka, the Berlin-based Agency The bridge heads, and at the Bavarian sports product manufacturer Sixtus. The Lame’s Portfolio Danova, a Nuremberg-based provider of occupational health care as well. 40 percent of the company’s Lame to call his Own.

Own opinion, no matter what the cost

All-rounder Lahm: Versatile and always good

Independence was always part of his career. The defensive players also demonstrated in an Interview in 2009 with statements on transfer policy and philosophy. 50,000 Euro fine had to be Lame numbers at the time. Its autonomy, he wanted to receive for the period of the professional career. A role without the Board of Directors place among the Bayern bosses Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was Lame. Here, too, the 33-Year-old is pursuing a clear career plan.

On the court he was doing the Right thing. Although it is no longer felt for the father of a family of two children quite so effortlessly as in the past. The former Junior coach and current Bayern-assistant Hermann Gerland told again and again, like the story of how difficult it was to bring Lahm in the Bundesliga: “It is a well-known Trainer were flagged. Only Felix Magath has accessed.” From Stuttgart came back Lame matured and rose to become a great leader of the Bavaria.

An award is still missing

As the Lame began his career, had alpha animals such as Oliver Kahn and Michael Ballack to Say that. The only 1,70 meters big Lame not less influential, but he coined in his Generation, a different style of leadership. However, opinion is strong and quite application-aware: The injured Michael Ballack for the world Cup in 2010, assumed captaincy, he no longer was.
