French ace follows through on promise.
Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has backed up his promise of committing his future to the club by putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract, Sky Sports reports.
The 30-year-old French international declared after winning the Treble with Bayern last season that he had an agreement in place to pen a new deal with the record-breaking German champions.
Now, following the team’s first two days of pre-season training under new coach Pep Guardiola, he has moved quickly to reaffirm his commitment by putting his signature on the dotted line.
“I’m really pleased,” he told the club’s official website. “I always said how great it feels to be at FC Bayern.
“I have a good feeling for me and my family and I hope things will carry on the way they were in the past year.”
The 72-time France international joined Bayern in 2007 from Marseille for a then club record of €25 million, and soon he became one of the Bundesliga’s top players, scoring 80 goals and creating 120 assists in 237 appearances in Bavaria.
He has won three Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal titles and the UEFA Champions League for Bayern.
He has also notched two goals in eight international appearances this calendar year and looks on course to be a part of France’s World Cup squad next year.
