Ribery: I don't want to leave Bayern
Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery says that he does not want to leave the club, despite not being sure that the German giants will be in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Ribery has already stated his dislike for the Europa League, labelling the second tier of European football ''rubbish'' and claims that it is a difficult time for the club as they are not yet certain of finishing the season where they need to.
"It's very hard for a big player when you're not sure whether your team will qualify for the Champions League," Ribery told TZ. "I went through this before in my first season at Bayern. We played UEFA Cup football then and it wasn't much fun."
Bayern are one point above fourth-placed Hannover and currently sit in the Champions League qualifying spot, however Ribery, who has four goals and fifteen assists in just 20 Bundesliga appearances since coming back from injury at the start of the season, has reaffirmed his commitment to the club.
"I've already decided for myself that I want to stay,'' he said. "My contract with Bayern runs for four more years and I'm not even thinking about a transfer. I'm feeling very well at the club and I don't want to leave Bayern."
