After Bayern Munich's 4-1 win over Freiburg in their final Bundesliga game of the season, the footballing world bid farewell to two legendary icons.

Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso departed the Allianz Arena for the last time with both now retired from the game after two glittering careers.

The fans and players paid homage to the pair and after the game, Lahm took to Twitter to post a classy farewell message to his beloved club.

Lahm's entire professional career has been spent with the Bavarian club - although he was loaned out to Stuttgart in 2003 - and he has accumulated a ridiculous amount of trophies.

Eight league titles, six DFB Pokal's, a Champions League and, of course, a World Cup trophy reflect one of the game's finest ever careers.

Both Lahm and Alonso were substituted late on against Freiburg and their departure from the pitch had many around the Allianz welling up.

Now, the German giants have the arduous task of replacing the two legends, something that will not be easy to do.

Finding Lahm's heir will be the more difficult of the two tasks with world-class right back's in shortage across the world.

Tottenham's Kyle Walker has been linked with a move to Bavaria, however, the England international is likely to remain in the Premier League if he does leave the London club.

Replacing Alonso shouldn't be as difficult with Arturo Vidal, Joshua Kimmich, Renato Sanches and Thiago Alcantara at the club, as well as, Sebastian Rudy, who will arrive in the summer from Hoffenheim.
