Philipp Lahm: Borussia Dortmund are to blame for uncompetitive battle for the title

Bayern Munich captain blames Borussia Dortmund and other German top-flight teams of lack of competition.

He told Stern: “Borussia Dortmund are an unbelievably talented team who could have made the Bundesliga title race a lot closer. Although you have to say the rest of the Bundesliga lacks quality.

“I don’t think Bayern Munich alone is responsible for how good we are doing. If we are 13 points clear after 25 games, it means that other well-positioned clubs like Schalke or Wolfsburg have not been set up to win consistently.

“The financial situation in the league wasn’t that different in the years we finished second and fourth.”
