Frustrated players never make good team-mates, and that could end up being the case for Bayern midfielder Franck Ribery. The French international is said to be growing tired of the lack of support he’s getting from his team-mates. Could this be another nail in coffin that sees him shipped off to Manchester United this summer?
France international midfielder Franck Ribery has criticised his Bayern Munich team-mates over on-pitch tactics, the German media reported on Tuesday.
“I complained to the coach (Jurgen Klinsmann) about the fact that I never have enough support when I want to attack on the left side,” Ribery told the tabloid daily Bild. “The coach said I had a point.”
Ribery, who has been repeatedly linked with a big-money move away from the club, was speaking in reference to Bayern’s disappointing 0-0 draw against Werder Bremen on Sunday, which left the reigning champions fifth in the Bundesliga table.
His remarks come at a time when speculation about his future is mounting, with his agent having recently suggested that he could be set for a move to Spanish league leaders Barcelona. (AFP)
Ribery may or may not move this summer, but this bit of news could be in Manchester United’s favour if he does decide to leave the Bundesliga for the rough and tumble Premier League.
