Munich — Germany captain Philipp Lahm and attacking
midfielder Thomas Mueller have both extended their contracts with Bayern Munich
for two more years.
Bayern says Lahm has signed through June 2018 and Mueller
has agreed to a deal through June 2019.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says, "Both
Philipp Lahm and Thomas Mueller are very important foundation stones for
Bayern. Both have stayed true to the club from the beginning of their careers
and will play an important role here in the future, too."
Lahm, a 30-year-old right back who often played in midfield
this past season, says, "It's definitely my last contract. I will finish
my career at Bayern. That was always what I wanted."
Both he and the 24-year-old Mueller are in Brazil playing
for Germany at the World Cup.
