Berlin, June 29 (IANS) Frenchman Franck Ribery put pen to paper on a new contract with Bayern Munich until 2017, the German football giant announced.
The German treble winner and midfielder Ribery closed the deal this Friday between training sessions. The 30-year-old French international already announced after the end of the last Bundesliga campaign that he planned to stay with the Bavarians.
"I am very delighted. I have always said that I feel at home in Bayern. I have a good feeling for my family and me, and I hope it continues like last year," Ribery told the club's official homepage.
The Frenchmen joined the Bavarians in 2007 from Marseille to score 53 goals in 156 appearances. Since his arrival at Bayern, Ribery became quickly a key player of the team owing to his excellent dribble skills and his ball control.
