Ribery: “Lewandowski is an extraordinary player”
Bayern Munich are already warming up their engines for the upcoming season and they have more than enough reasons to be optimistic about what the future is holding for them. In a move which we’ve seen repeatedly over the last years, this summer the Bavarians managed to sign Borussia Dortmund‘s world-class striker Robert Lewandowski, who was precisely their biggest rivals’ biggest star.
Lewandowski agreed terms with Bayern Munich last January, but only walked out of his contract with Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season, strengthening the German champions on a free transfer move.
Judging by Franck Ribery‘s recent words, it seems that it didn’t take him much time to start impressing his new teammates. The French international confessed to be delighted to have the opportunity of playing alongside Lewandowski and that he also feels he’s going to be back in his best form very soon…
Ribery: “Lewandowski is truly an extraordinary player. His chemistry with the team is improving day after day and that’s wonderful for us. He has been getting along very well with everyone and I can tell you it’s been very entertaining to play with him so far”, stated the 31-year old winger.
After being forced to miss the last 2014 FIFA World Cup due to an injury on his back, Ribery has moved on and is now determined in preparing himself for the always difficult challenges of a new season.
Ribery: “I’m obviously not at 100% yet, but that’s perfectly normal. I lost most of the competitive pace during the stoppage and I’m well aware one of my game’s strengths is precisely my speed. The important though is that I’m not feeling pain anymore and I’m very pleased to be able to play right from the start of the season”, commented the former Olympique Marseille football player.
