Bayern Munich future will be decided in weeks says Ribery
Monday 08 March 2010
Bayern Munich’s French ace Franck Ribery has stated that he will make a decision about his future in the next few weeks.
The 26-year-old forward is a target for most of Europe’s top clubs, with his current Bayern contract running out at the end of next season.
He told French TV: “When will I decide my future? In two or three weeks.
“I am not 100 per cent sure I am going to go to Real Madrid. Barcelona is also attractive and there is Chelsea.
“But that doesn't necessarily mean I will leave Bayern.”
Meanwhile, Bayern head coach Louis van Gaal was far from satisfied with his side’s display in the 1-1 weekend draw with Koln.
The Dutchman told reporters: “For the first 15 minutes we played the way we planned beforehand.
“But after that, we tried to go through the middle far too often and that wasn’t clever, because that’s where all the Koln players were.
“We were better after half-time because we got the ball wide, but we failed to score the second goal.”
Bayer Leverkusen head coach Jupp Heynckes was disappointed after seeing his side’s unbeaten record in the Bundesliga come to an end with a 3-2 defeat at Nurnberg.
Heynckes’ side were three goals behind ten minutes into the second half and were unable to make it 25 games unbeaten despite a late rally.
Heynckes told the club’s official website: "That was for us a bitter defeat.
“Due to the first half, in which we lacked commitment and passion, the Nurnberg victory was deserved. If one plays in such a way, one cannot be successful.
“So we must not go on the defensive, as we showed against a well-organised opponent in the last half-hour.”
