Franck Ribery, who has just extended a year with Bayern Munich, assured Wednesday he is “back”, and does not rule out trying to stay a little longer at the expiration of his contract in June 2018. “My body is in shape. I’m back and I’m 100% back. For me health is the most important, “he said in an interview in German Sky.
Asked about after 2018, when he is 35, the idol of the Allianz Arena for years answers quietly: “When my contract is finished, we will discuss at that time … but I Am already happy to have a year and a half more with the club “. Asked about the likely reconversion of his current captain Philipp Lahm as Bayern’s sporting director next season, the ex-international replied jokingly: “I could work with him, help him, tell him what to do.” Before recalling, more seriously, he has “a special relationship” with Bayern.
