Ribery future at Bayern Munich up in the air
French winger Frank Ribery future at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich is up in the air after the club’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge refused to offer any guarantees.
The 35-year-old winger's contract expires at the end of the season and it is unclear whether he will be offered an extension and Rummenigge confirmed that they plan to hold talks with the player but was unsure about the outcome of the talks.
"We've had some amazing years thanks to him. I have huge respect for Franck. You have to be open and honest. At some point, we'll have a conversation with him and his agent and then make a joint decision. I can't predict what that will be," he told Eurosport.
Ribery came off the bench in Friday's 3-2 win at Augsburg for his 16th Bundesliga appearance of the campaign. Veteran team-mate Arjen Robben, also 35, has already confirmed this season will be his last at Bayern.
Ribery has enjoyed huge success since joining the club from Marseille in 2007, most notably inspiring them to a treble of Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League wins in 2012-13, but injury problems have restricted his impact in recent seasons.
