German legend Philipp Lahm has been added to Bayern Munich’s hall of fame to celebrate his retirement as the 33-year-old becomes the 17th player to be inducted into the Bavarians Hall of Fame.
Lahm has played his entire career with the German giants, with the exception of a brief loan spell at Stuttgart, winning eight Bundesliga titles and the Champions League.
The versatile defender was presented with a Hall of Fame blazer as his star was unveiled at the club’s museum on Monday, nine days after the last of his 517 appearances.
And the German legend was quick to mention how much that final outing, a 4-1 win over Freiburg to cap a fifth straight Bundesliga title had meant to him.
The full-back, who also won 113 caps for Germany, is the first player to be inducted since goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, who retired in 2008.
“Last Saturday was incredibly emotional for me and my last day will remain etched in my memory forever,” Lahm said.
