RIBERY RULED OUT
The star player of Bayern Munich Franck Ribery sustained a cracked rib during France’s match against Ukraine that saw the French team coming out as the winning team with a final result of 3-0 but after a series of tackles the French winger will be left in the sidelines for around 2 weeks.
The 30 years old Frenchman is a top candidate on winning the upcoming Ballon d’Or after making a number of impressive performances that have helped Bayern Munich on claiming important silverware.
Barcelona is not the only club going through injury problems with their star performers as Bayern Munich is also missing out from a number of key players due to injuries which include: Bastian Scweinsteiger, Claudio Pizaaro, Xherdan Shaqiri and Holger Badstuber.
Pep Guardiola said however that he is not worried about the recent number of players getting injured.
“We are a super team on the pitch, We can almost compensate for any injury, without causing problems,” Rummenigge told Kicker.
The chief executive of Bayern Munich Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that despite the players being sidelined recently they will not have an active transfer market in January as he believes that the squad has enough depth to deal with any kind or number of injury problems.
When probed about possible departures in January, the 58-year-old said: “No player wants to leave Bayern.”
The German club’s sporting director, Matthias Sammer, reiterated Rummenigge’s comments, suggesting that changes will only be made if completely necessary.
Sammer added: “We are currently not thinking about changing anything. Only if further injuries occur, then, one cannot rule out a change of course.”
Scoring 5 goals and providing 6 assists for Bayern Munich, Ribery plays a pivotal role for the German side in this season and also helping last year’s treble winners to take up a comfortable position in both the domestic league and Europe.
