Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has said that Philipp Lahm would be welcomed back to the Allianz Arena in a coaching capacity with open arms.
"Philipp is always someone who will be in the debate with FC Bayern, if somewhere a position is [available]," he told Sky Germany. "He has lived the FC Bayern [way] and is someone who thinks outside the box.
"He has the necessary experience, knows the club inside out and of course already [offers] a lot. Otherwise he would not have been a candidate for the sports director post last summer."
Lahm, 34, made over 500 appearances for Bayern, winning eight Bundesliga titles, six German Cups and one Champions League during his time with the German giants before retiring from football last summer.
