Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has reportedly ruled out any return to the Germany national team, while admitting that he would 'never say never'.

Lahm said that it is like life, adding that one should never say never as something could always crop up. But truthfully, he added that he is ruling out any comeback from retirement.

Lahm ended h is international career just five days after he lead his country to the World Cup glory in Brazil, Sport24 reported.

The 30-year-old Bayern Munich fullback had played 113 games for Germany and him withdrawing from the international stage took many by surprise.

But Lahm confirmed that he was 100 percent convinced of his decision, which he said was taken not on an emotional whim but after some hard thinking.

Lahm would now focus on the season ahead with Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga champions with whom he is under contract until 2018. He said that it is a shame that the holidays are over.

But, he added that they have to focus on the upcoming season and do everything to reach the goals they have set.

Bayern Munich will face Borussia Dortmund in the German Supercup on August 13 before lining up against Wolfsburg at home in their opening Bundesliga match on August 22, the report added.
