well, not in exactly those words. but michael ballack says in this video. ‘ich bin der kapitan.’ (i am the captain). leave a comment if you’d like the whole thing translated. he and the diminutive phillip lahm are fighting over who will lead germany’s national football team. ballack, who had the misfortune of getting injured just weeks prior to the 2010 world cup in south africa, was replaced by the 26 year old lahm whose decided that he doesn’t want to give his place back. because that’s they way they rock it in deutschland. so the bigger question is, will thomas mueller give michael ballack his lucky number 13 shirt back?
