#OYINBOTORCHLIGHT – BAYERN MUNICH’S RETIRING CAPTAIN PHILIPP LAHM: ‘I WANT TO TRY AND ENJOY MY FINAL WEEKS’
Philipp Lahm will only get two more chances to appear at the Allianz Arena in Bayern Munich colours.
The south stand applauded and Lahm acknowledged the encouragement as he applauded them for their support in the pouring Munich rain after the 3-2 DFB Cup semi-final defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
The Bayern captain no doubt would have liked to end his impressive career with the DFB Cup final in Berlin, but instead the curtain will come down after Matchday 34’s home game against SC Freiburg.
The 33-year-old now wants to move on from the painful defeat to Dortmund on Wednesday night and savour the remaining time he has as a player. “We had plenty of chances to increase our lead, but then they equalised to make it 2-2 and I made a mistake for them to go 3-2 up. That’s why we’re out,” a self-critical Lahm analysed following the result.
