Bayern Munich Is The Last European Club For Franck Ribery


Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery reveals that the German club will be his last club in Europe before calling it a day.

The Frenchman signed a new contract last month at Bayern Munich. He extended his current deal by an year. The forward is hopeful about signing one more contract with Bayern Munich once this new deal also expires.

Ribery admits that Bayern will be his last club in Europe. This probably suggests that the French forward might move to MLS in future or consider retirement after the contract with Bayern ends. In an interview with Eurosport, Ribery revealed that he will be open to play somewhere across the globe if Bayern don’t offer a new contract.

"“In Europe, Bayern is my last club – 100 per cent.”“Do I need a different experience or idea? If so, only just for fun, not like now at Bayern. Maybe I’ll quit after my time at Bayern; maybe I will play somewhere else for one more year.”"

Bayern have switched the focus on getting their veteran forward signed up for new deals in last few months. Arjen Robben is also in line for a new deal as the talks are going in the right direction. Ribery believes that there is a good chance that he could extend his stay at the club beyond the 18 months of his current deal.

"“How do they say in Munich? ‘Schau’n mer mal’ [‘We’ll see’]. We’ll see how this season goes and then the one after that.“I know that the door for me to renew again here is always open.”"

Ribery has achieved great success since moving to Bayern Munich in 2007. The French forward has won numerous honours including a Champions League during his time at the club. He finished third in the list of World’s best footballer in year 2013 after achieving a successful treble with Bayern.
