Ribery: I won't make way for Reus

The 31-year-old has stressed that he still has a future at Bayern, irrespective of the club’s interest in the Germany international

Bayern Munich attacker Franck Ribery has insisted that he does not intend to make way for Marco Reus at the Bundesliga champions.

The Borussia Dortmund winger has been heavily linked with Bayern in recent months, with the Bavarians allegedly seeing Reus as the perfect replacement for Ribery.

Nevertheless, the Frenchman is determined to fight for his place and does not have any intention of leaving Bayern for now.

“Reus is a great player,” Ribery admitted to Kicker.

“But I will be around at Bayern for a while, even if I’m turning 32 in a bit.

“I am feeling very well and I am raring to go again.

“I am still an important player at Bayern. People should not write me off just yet.”

Reus has a contract with Dortmund until June 2017, but has a buyout clause that would allow him to leave for €25 million at the end of this season.

The 25-year-old has also been linked with clubs such as Manchester City and Real Madrid in recent months.
