The making of Philipp Lahm

We trace the rise of the Bayern München captain, going back to the grassroots club where he began his career.

Now Germany and FC Bayern München captain, we go back to where it all began for Philipp Lahm as we visit Munich-based grassroots club FT Gern. We hear from those who knew Lahm when he was at the club, including his mother, who tells us that his love for football began even before he was born.
