In an exclusive interview with bundesliga.com, Lahm gave his verdict on what could be made of Bayern’s next season under a new manager.

The Bayern Munich legend expects to see the record-breaking German champions play out an ‘interesting’ season under Julian Nagelsmann.

Speaking to the channel, Lahm said: “He's a very young coach but he’s still experienced, he's been a Bundesliga coach for six years now.

According to him, Bayern is the next logical step for the young coach.

“He's got enough experience, he's a very interesting coach, the most interesting in the Bundesliga, you have to say. It makes sense that Bayern would want to get the most interesting coach,” he said.

He also pointed on-fire Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller as key for the club to maintain their league winning momentum.

He commented: "I think Julian Nagelsmann can play with a target man. Robert's someone
who is happy to drift into wide positions but his absolute strength is his goal return, that's clear. You can see that in his numbers.

Lewandowski, with almost 40 goals to his name this season, as a coach you can't ignore him, you have to find a place for him in the team. Especially together with Müller who plays in and around the number nine, it looks like a perfect combination. It'll be interesting, first of all, to see how Bayern can find some momentum under a new coach.”
