philipp lahm facts

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.”
