It seems that you don't always need to to be a manager at a top-flight club to play mind games with other clubs. After Bundesliga team Bourussia Monchengladbach recorded an impressive 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich, Bayern's captain Philipp Lahm has come out with some derogatory comments, stating that they need not fear Monchengladbach.
In fact, Lahm doesn't even consider them strong title contenders.
Currently, Bundesliga has four teams separated by a point at the top of the table. He stated that neither Schalke nor Gladbach have a chance to win the title.
The strongest contenders, according to Lahm, are reigning champions Borussia Dortmund.
However, he reserved some contempt for Dortmund as well. Even after Dortmund won the race in signing precocious talent Marco Reus, Lahm believes that Bayern have a much stronger side.
What do you think about Philipp Lahm's choice of words? Who will win the Bundesliga this year?
