“Few would ever consider describing Lahm as the best player in the world. That is a title that is exclusively the preserve of the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar … It seems unfair, though, to suggest that what Lahm does somehow requires less talent, less ability. To read a game, to have the instinct to understand exactly what is about to happen in three, five, ten seconds into the future: that is a gift. To be able to tune into the subtle rhythm of a game, to perceive the pattern of play, to twist it and contort it just a little to give your side an infinitesimal advantage: that is a gift. To make what you want to happen, happen: that, too, is a gift, and it is a gift Lahm has in abundance.” - ESPN’s Rory Smith

you choose to leave at this very moment… i respect your choice and i think i understand why… but i’m not ready for this… i really am not…
PLAYER GUIDES FOR 2014 WORLD CUP - GERMANY
I haven’t laughed like this in some time :)))
“Philipp Lahm is the best spoken German pro in decades. Reporters love him because if they only get him for just two sentences or three phrases, they can just about always use every word. He’s such a far cry from the typical pro; he offers up intelligent, grammatically correct, useful, thoughtful full sentences - while still sweating and waiting for his pulse to return to normal after the final whistle. He does analyze and most often offers up accurate, sincere critique. Lahm is just about always a coach’s favorite player. Reliable, consistent, always fit. But also truly smart.”
He has a lair under his house it’s pretty awesome
(also he will avoid speaking in English because he didn’t like that class because it wasn’t football. ahahahahah)
This quote. One of the best.
F*** yeah! I mean, F*** YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!
I wish I could interview him… or just sit next to him…
