Ribery – “Ich bin ein Münchener!”

Ribery, What a beauty!

Ribery, What a beauty!

uber-Winger Franck Ribery finally broke his silence after a long long long summer of transfer speculations. The former Marseille midfielder is considered to be one of the hottest property in world football and was a target by top clubs such at high spending Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Ribery finally spoke out about one of the most followed transfer sagas of the summer insisting that he never wanted to leave FC Bayern. Zee German club has thrown out any bid for the winger and were so stern on their position that even the world’s favourite stubborn Scotsman, Sir Alex Ferguson, backed off. Perhaps Ribery has finally shut the door for a possible move out of Bavaria but can we really trust what players say these days?

Here is what Maestro Franck had to say:

“I never said I wanted to leave for Real Madrid,” Ribery told TF1. “If I wanted to leave, I would have announced it.

“What bothers me is that I never spoke. Newspapers invent a lot of things.

“I can’t prevent clubs from making offers. Moreover, there wasn’t just Real. There were also Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea.

“What I can tell them is that today I am still at Bayern.

“The doors are truly closed. My bosses really want me to stay.”

    still think he wants a move to real madrid, and they’ll probably get him next summer.

    the only thing left now is an end to the lescott transfer saga.

    He’s a good player all right, but is more willing to join madrid, and since they cooled down their interest on him and that both united and chelsea are unwilling to pay the asking amount, may be he thought it is best to regain the love of the munchën crown before its too late
