Philipp Lahm caught teammates and club bosses by surprise when he not only announced he would retire in June but also that he would spurn an offer to fill the vacant sports director role at Bayern.With Bayern, he has won the Bundesliga title seven times, the German Cup six times – with more silverware likely to come in May – and has been club captain since January 2011 .With midfielder Xabi Alonso also retiring in June, Lahm's added departure will leave Bayern short on experience next season, but he explained his reasons.Sport Bild claim Lahm turned down the job because it did not include a position on Bayern's board and he wanted to have the same power as Rummenigge and Hoeness.Lahm painted a different picture, not wanting to go from his playing career into a high-profile position at Bayern, even with a break.
