Lahm commits to Bayern

Published Add your comment

Germany international Philipp Lahm has ended speculation about his future at Bayern Munich by extending his contract until 2012.

The 24-year-old had been strongly linked with Barcelona and only a few weeks ago, the player rated his own chances of leaving at 50/50, but a meeting last week with future Bayern coach Jurgen Klinsmann has convinced him to put pen-to-paper on a new deal.

"I am really looking forward to staying here, otherwise I would not have done it," said Lahm at a press conference on Friday. "My aim is to win the Champions League with FC Bayern and I am convinced we can do it in the near future."
