Franck Ribery’s future at Bayern Munich is again in doubt after he questioned whether the Bundesliga outfit can compete with Europe’s top clubs.
Ribery’s future at Bayern has been the subject of speculation in recent months with the Frenchman linked with moves to some of Europe’s bigger clubs.
“Bayern is still a big club. It’s one of the biggest in the world but I find that our team is not as strong as other teams, like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea,” Ribery told RTL radio. “Maybe we will have trouble competing against these teams.”
Bayern are keen to resolve Ribery’s future and the 26-year-old is expected to make a decision before the end of the season.
“I want to win trophies and to enjoy myself. I’m not 20 any more. I am closer to the end (of my career) than the beginning,” added Ribery.
Ribery also revealed he could be tempted to join up with France team-mate Thierry Henry at Barcelona.
“I get on really well with him. I know he would also like to see me there,” noted Ribery.
“I know a lot of people would like to see me stay (at Bayern). Whether I stay or go it won’t be an easy decision.”
