Germany’s Philipp Lahm opens up a can of whoop-ass!

Stand back everyone – tough guy coming through

Philipp Lahm

Okay, it’s not quite getting to heavyweight boxer proportions, where one guy says he’s going to have sex with the other one’s wife, before also threatening to eat his offspring and brutalise his very soul, but the Germans are having a decent crack at football trash talk.

Schweinsteiger got the ball rolling, by suggesting that the South Americans don’t know how to lose gracefully, to which Maradona snorted something along the lines of “what? You scared or something?”. And now one of football’s gentlemen, Philipp Lahm, has said this:

“The South Americans are temperamental.”

“We know that and we will see how they will deal this time with a defeat.”

Whoah! Chill out, Philipp.
