Ribery tired of exit rumours

France international Franck Ribery has admitted that he is growing tired of all the speculation about his future.

Hardly a week goes by without the player being linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena and all the rumours are starting to annoy him.



He has once again tried to put an end to all the exit talk by telling L'Equipe: "Everyone keeps asking me about my future, they only want to talk about when I will leave.



"But it is useless because I don't want to talk about it anymore. I am fed up.



"Staying or leaving? I don't reply to that question anymore. I am enjoying life at Bayern and I feel fine here."



Outspoken Stuttgart goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is at the centre of a fresh storm after accusing Werder Bremen's Diego of cheating.



Lehmann was outraged after the Brazilian won and then converted a first-half free-kick to open the scoring in Sunday's 4-0 victory for the home side at the Weserstadion.



"It is not the first time that he wins a free-kick deceitfully," fumed Lehmann, who had confronted Diego as the players left the pitch at half-time.



"And then for him to show his delight at gaining an advantage from it shows his true character."

Bayern Munich will be without Miroslav Klose for up to four weeks after scans on the striker's injured ankle revealed the need for surgery.



Klose limped out of the 3-0 win over Bochum on Saturday and an assessment has revealed the Germany international has suffered a partial tear to the tendon in his right ankle.



Klose will now miss Germany's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Liechtenstein and Wales and is an early doubt for next month's Champions League quarter-finals.



"This is obviously a bitter blow," admitted coach Jurgen Klinsmann.



"We can only hope that the operation goes well and Miro gets back on his feet quickly."



Bayern are already without fellow striker Luca Toni with an Achilles problem.
