Philipp Lahm – Bayern Munich & Germany
FIFA 15 Rating – 87
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 85
After captaining Germany to World Cup glory last summer, Philipp Lahm has missed a large part of this season after fracturing an ankle in training back in November. In his 18 league appearances this season, Lahm contributed two goals and two assists and also made eight Champions League appearances as Bayern progressed to the semi finals before facing defeat to Barcelona. A great passer and strong on the ball, Lahm has been a regular in the Bayern team for many seasons, deployed normally at full back or as a defensive midfielder. A fantastic leader on the field, Lahm is also the current Bayern captain having been at the club for 13 years.
Having led Germany to their 4th World Cup last summer, Lahm announced his international retirement after 113 appearances and having scored on five occasions.
Having now retired from the international scene, Bayern fans will be hoping that Lahm will be able to continue to focus on his long career at Bayern as they aim for continued domestic and European success next season.
