Ribery happy to end his career at Bayern Munich

France winger Franck Ribery would be happy to end his career at

Bayern Munich.

Ribery has helped Bayern remain a Bundesliga title contender,

scoring 10 goals in 22 games to leave him only one short of his

best total in the league.

Ribery, who is likely to play against Germany in Wednesday’s

friendly in Bremen, said in Tuesday’s edition of France Football

magazine that he is not tempted to join another club.

”I’m nearly 29 and I’ve got a contract that runs until 2015, so

why not (stay)? I’m not thinking about leaving,” Ribery said. ”My

wife and my children are happy in Munich. We’ve just bought a nice

house. I’ve been at Bayern for five seasons, I’ve got close friends

like (defender) Daniel (van Buyten). This club has become my second

family, my sporting family.”

Ribery became an instant hit among Bayern fans when he joined

from Marseille four seasons ago.

”I’m popular here. At Bayern, in Germany, I feel happy, that’s

the word. I’m really loving it,” Ribery said. ”The next Champions

League final is being held in the Allianz Arena … I hope 2012

will be a great year for me.”

Ribery has scored 64 goals in 176 games for Bayern in all

competitions, and the club needs him to stay at his best.

Bayern is four points behind Borussia Dortmund in the

Bundesliga, and last week lost to FC Basel 1-0 in the first leg of

the last 16 in the Champions League.
