Former captain of Bayern Munich and Germany Philip Lahm is wary of the possible holding of the 2034 World Cup in Saudi Arabia.
“In my opinion, players who wear the Germany jersey should always embody and work for important social values such as democracy and freedom, openness and tolerance,” RND quotes the German football legend as saying. – I have been following the situation with the 2034 World Cup and Saudi Arabia with great concern. Because this is exactly the opposite of what would be good for football. I would like tournaments such as the World and European Championships to be held exclusively in democratic countries.”
It should be noted that during his career, Philipp Lahm played 113 matches for the Bundesteam, becoming the world champion in 2014, and is now the director of the upcoming Euro 2024 in Germany.
