Franck Ribery returns to action

Franck Ribery has vowed to come back stronger from the ankle injury which has kept him out since March. The winger is eager to make up for lost time at Bayern Munich after injury cut short his 2014-15 season. Ribery has not played since limping out of Bayern Munich’s 7-0 drubbing of Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last 16, first-leg tie, on March 11 and described the injury as a catastrophe. He is hopeful of returning to training in July after an ankle injury ruled him out of the final stages of last season.

While Ribery acknowledged his injury has been a “disaster”, the 32-year-old is targeting a return to first team training next month. “This has been a disaster. I actually have everything that one can dream of in life but I am not free. I always think of my foot,” he said. “I want to run, I want to work, I want to play. I have to train in order to be happy.”

The Frenchman last featured for Bayern in March, with his ankle problem ruling him out of the Bundesliga
run in and UEFA Champions League semifinal exit at the hands of Barcelona. The France winger admits the injury continues to test his patience but he hopes to start running again soon and make a full recovery for pre-season in July.

Ribery, who is a key fixture in Bayern’s success over recent years, also denied he feared for his place in the side ahead of the transfer window.Ribery promised he would come back “just as strong” as before injury struck and was dismissive of rumors that Bayern were eyeing up replacements.

As it is reported that Bayern would have at least needed to match United’s outlay for Di Maria, while other players like Paul Pogba could end up transferred across Europe this summer for up to €100 million.

“That’s not a problem for me. If I am 100 percent fit, then anyone who wants my place can come,” said Ribery. “The injury is getting on my nerves, it’s a catastrophe,” he told the reporters. “I have everything which one can only dream of in life, but I am not free.”

Ribery says the injury is “significantly better” and hopes to be able to run again soon. He was eager to take
part in Bayern’s pre-season training, which will start in July. “I have to be fit for July 1. Whether I will manage that, I don`t know, but I will try everything to make it happen,” he added.

He took himself off on holiday to Ibiza and Paris, with a physiotherapist in tow, in a bid to cheer him up, but
he said the injury played on his mind the whole time. “I thought it would help, but I hardly had any fun on holiday,” he said, after Bayern won the Bundesliga title and bowed out of the Champions League semi-finals without him.
