Eintracht Frankfurt 0:4 Bayern Bayern Munich opened up a seven-point advantage at the top of the Bundesliga thanks to a Thomas Muller hat trick at Eintracht Frankfurt. Germany international Muller broke the deadlock in what was becoming a frustrating game for Bayern before adding two more in as many second-half minutes. Xherdan Shaqiri added a fourth late on as Pep Guardiola's men continued their march towards a third straight Bundesliga title. Frankfurt had clearly done their homework and watched how Borussia Monchengladbach had held Bayern to a 0-0 draw recently as they employed similar tactics. They frustrated their opponents by preventing them from creating any chances while being quick on the counter whenever they had the chance to break. It was not until midway through the first half that Bayern finally got a chance to score, and they took it. Franck Ribery exchanged passes with Robert Lewandowski before setting up Muller, whose first shot was blocked on the line, but he followed up and converted wi ...

Bayern and Real Madrid are also meant to you. The German international Marco Reus is a target for Manchester City, according to the newspaper "Bild", had offered to Borussia Dortmund player a salary of 13 million euros a year. Reus can leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of this season in exchange for payment of a termination clause of 25 million euros. Bayern Munich until now was considered the favorite in the race for Reus although his name has also been frequently associated with the Barcelona and Real Madrid. Economically, the offer of the City may be above where Bayern are the highest paid players Franck Ribery, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger having an estimated 12 million a year salary. However, it is possible that in making its decision the player also consider various other economic factors as it did and does in 2012 when, being ...

Ribery ruled out of Manchester City clash, but Robben fit Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has been ruled out of their Champions League opener at Manchester City after his knee problem flared up again. The Frenchman made his first appearance of the season, coming of the bench to score during Bayern's 2-0 win over Stuttgart on Saturday, but skipped Sunday's post-match training session and will miss Wednesday's Group E opener against the Premier League champions. "Ribery will not take part in the final training session," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola admitted. "He is at home and cannot play. "The doctor saw him on Monday and said he cannot play." Ribery, 31, missed the first two weeks of the season with a knee injury and could well find himself being rested between matches as he feels his way back to full fitness. Guardiola did, however, say that Arjen Robben - who missed Saturday's game with a knee problem - was fit and had been included in the squad. The Spanish tactician will need to reshuffle his defence ...

Cristiano Ronaldo On Winning The Ballon D'Or The Portuguese star scooped up the 2013 award for the world's greatest footballer and admitted it was a more emotional experience than his previous win in 2008 Cristiano Ronaldo claims he is the worthy winner of the Fifa Ballon d'Or after being crowned as the world's Best Player for 2013 in Zurich on Monday.

Chelsea to Make Bid for Bayern Munich Midfielder This Weekend. Chelsea are readying a bid for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos with Football Direct News claiming the west London side will register their interest in the German international this weekend. Kroos wants parity with top earners Franck Ribery, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm a demand the Bundesiga side have resisted for some months and the Bayern Munich man now has just a year to run on his current contract and as such could be ready to consider offers for his services knowing his value will rapidly decrease once the summer transfer window slams shut. Chelsea are willing to meet the 24 year old’s wage demands and this source claims that Kroos is to act as a long term replacement for Frank Lampard and is part of Jose Mourinho’s overall plan to refresh his squad as he plans for the future. Man United have long been linked with a genuine interest in Kroos but the Old Trafford side have distanced themselves from the move since Louis v ...
Since reaching the World Cup Final in 2006, France have disappointed at the major tournaments. The last World Cup was a disaster both on and off the pitch. They were fortunate to qualify for this edition, but in doing so showed they can rise to the occasion when it really matters. This year, France find themselves in another straightforward-looking group, and also with one of the most star-studded squads out there. Yet if recent history is anything to go by, they could easily finish last...     World Cup Record:   Qualifications: 14   Wins: 1   Best performance: Winners (1998)     The Team   Coach: Didier Deschamps.

Louis Van Gaal vs. United ! Louis Van Gaal has faced Manchester United four times and, on every occasion, football fans have been treated to high-octane matches filled with goals and attacking endeavour. In September 1998, the Dutchman brought Barcelona to Old Trafford for a memorable Champions League tie. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs scored early goals but Sonny Anderson and Giovanni restored parity on the hour. David Beckham’s stunning free-kick was then cancelled out by Luis Enrique’s penalty, capping a wonderful 3-3 draw. Remarkably, the sides did it all again two months later. The Catalans led first through Anderson, only for Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole to put United ahead. Two Rivaldo goals then sandwiched Yorke’s second to clinch another entertaining 3-3 draw at Camp Nou. Eleven years later, in March 2010, van Gaal’s Bayern Munich welcomed United to the Allianz Arena. Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the first leg after just 66 seconds, before Franck Ribery's deflected free-kick set up a dr ...

Front page news in Germany: Arsenal and Liverpool want Muller-- Last week German magazine Kicker kicked off the Thomas Muller to Manchester United stories. They did a feature on four players who were giving Bayern Munich four problems. Those players were Bastian Schweinsteiger, Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery. The problem in Muller's case, according to Kicker, was partly that Louis Van Gaal would like to sign the player if and when he's confirmed as Manchester United manager and, perhaps more surprisingly, they claimed that the German international is interested in such a move. That led to every English newspaper running the story and elaborating in their own way on it. Muller then had to deny he was eager to leave, but didn't guarantee he'd stay forever and Franz Beckenbauer said Bayern needed to keep Muller but would have to find a solution if he wanted to leave. This week's edition of Kicker has Muller on the front page, along with the claim 'Arsenal and Liverpool also want Muller', it's ...

Double substitution, for Bayern Munich, Franck Ribery off, Mario Gotze off and Thomas Muller off, Claudio Pizzaro on.
Bayern coach Pep Guardiola has backed France forward Franck Ribery to inspire a comeback from the five-time European champions, who are aiming to become the first side to retain the Champions League. Ribery, who was named as the world's third Best Player behind Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in January, was criticised for his performance in Spain last week. But he shone against Bremen and Guardiola is expecting him to play another starring role on Tuesday. "Franck played like he was possessed at the weekend," said Guardiola. "He fights and fights and for this reason the people love him here at the Allianz Arena. "He is one of the Best Players in the history of Bayern Munich and we need his help." The winner of Bayern and Real will play either Chelsea or Atletico Madrid, who meet again on Wednesday, in the final on 24 May in Portugal's capital city Lisbon.

All to play for in semi-final showdowns (FIFA.com) Monday 28 April 2014 Share With just one goal scored in last week's Uefa Champions League semi-final openers, the return legs ought to serve up plenty of drama and intrigue on Tuesday and Wednesday. Bayern Munich tackle Real Madrid for the 22nd time needing to score at least one goal to salvage their dream of retaining the title, whereas Los Merengues are the only club in the last four able to defend first-leg gains. As for Atletico Madrid, the sole team still unbeaten in the competition, their incredible adventure continues away against a Chelsea side brimming with belief. First semi-final, Tuesday 29 April Bayern Munich-Real Madrid (first leg: 0-1) The scoreline did not tell the whole story during Bayern's 5-2 win against Werder Bremen on Saturday as Josep Guardiola's men put in a Jekyll and Hyde display, labouring in the first half before hitting their stride after the break.

MATCH REPORT : BAYERN RESPONDS IN A CHAMPIONS TASTE HAS JUST BEEN PUBLISHED VIA UNPLUGGED SPORTS Bayern Munich remain on course to retain their Champions League crown after coming from behind to beat Manchester United on Wednesday evening to secure a 4-2 aggregate win. A 1-1 draw in Manchester last week meant United claimed a shock aggregate lead at the Allianz Arena when Patrice Evra hit a stunning 57th-minute strike. The goal awoke Bayern from their slumber though, and Mario Mandzukic quickly levelled proceedings. And Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben also netted as three goals in the space of 17 minutes sealed a 4-2 aggregate victory for Pep Guardiola's side. Bayern have now reached the semi-finals of Europe's premier club competition for the third season in a row. The result signals an end to United's hopes of winning a trophy this season – something that has not happened since the 2004-05 campaign. Mandzukic, Muller, Robben, Franck Ribery and Mario Gotze all started for Bayern in an aggressive line-up ...
5 things we learnt from the game between FC Bayern Munich vs Manchester United FC: 1. Manchester United gave their best shot and did not go down without a fight. They may not participate in the Champions League next season. They were beaten today by a better team who have marched on in a hope to make history. David Moyes should be proud of his players. 2. Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were the stars for Bayern Munich today. They constantly raided the United full backs, not letting them breathe and it finally came to fruition as Robben scored one and assisted one to give Bayern Munich their semi-final berth. 3. Patrice Evra scored a stunner tonight but he was poor defensively, not tracking back enough, letting Mandzukic go past him for the equaliser and letting Robben run at the United defense. It was evident today that Patrice Evra is done at the top level and most probably done at Manchester United FC. 4. Manchester United were resolute defensively, their game plan was working and they were successful i ...
Eish! I don't worry to Barcelona knocked out of the Uefa Champion but while congratulation well done to Atletico Madrid has gone to semifinal. I can't believe to Bayern Munich did shooting goals soon but wrong about Man United Goalkeeper weak as not save. Franck Ribery very crazy so much about first his fighting with Patrick Evra then i know his both together France. I feel not interesting now. :(
I'd rather play for Cabaye My Lover and look like I do, than play for Bayern Munich and look like Franck Ribery
Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) showcases his great technique and produces a beautiful lofted cross into the box, where Mario Mandžukić (Bayern Munich) manages to convert it into the goal. He heads it down into the middle of the net and gets on the scoresheet. It is 1:1.
I think Manchester United defensively have been excellent. You expected Bayern to come out of the blocks quickly, Arjen Robben has been a threat but saying that David De Gea has not made a save. I think Bayern have lost that cutting edge. Pep Guardiola is a coach who can work a team, he can get them to the final third but then he needs that bit of magic. Robben has been a handful but without hurting United. Franck Ribery has been in and out of the game. United have defended well."

Wayne Rooney starts for Manchester United as they attempt to book a last four spot at the expense of holders Bayern Munich. TEAM NEWS Bayern will be without three key midfielders for the quarter-final second leg, evenly poised after last week's 1-1 draw. Bastian Schweinsteiger is suspended following his first leg sending-off, Javier Martinez also misses out through suspension, while a third key midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, is out injured. Manchester United have doubts over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, although the striker has travelled to Bavaria despite his injured toe, which was heavily bruised in last week's first leg at Old Trafford. Ashley Young is also doubtful after picking up a hand injury in the weekend's win over Newcastle in the Premier League. But experienced left-back Patrice Evra has indicated he expects to be fit enough to return to the side after missing the first leg through suspension and despite struggling with a knee problem.

How can Manchester United topple Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich? In his regular BBC Sport tactics column, Robbie Savage looks at the task facing United. "United manager David Moyes says he might try something different in the second leg," says Savage. "But I cannot see United playing any more open than they did at Old Trafford. If they do that, they will get hammered. "The way United were set up was exactly right to stop Bayern. They had pace on both wings in Danny Welbeck and Antonio Valencia to help their full-backs against Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery."
MATCH FACTS Manchester United have kept a clean sheet in five of their nine Champions League games this season; no side has kept more. Since the 1999 Champions League final, Man Utd have won just one of their seven Champions League encounters with Bayern Munich (W1 D3 L3). United have scored in each of their last 15 Champions League meetings with German clubs, but the last one to stop them scoring was Bayern in March 2002. Bayern have only failed to score in one of their last 28 Champions League matches, but this came against English opposition (Arsenal in March 2013). Bayern have won six and drawn two of their last eight matches in the CL knockout stages, but the last team to defeat them in the KO stages were English (Arsenal – 0-2 in March 2013). No side has won more penalties than Bayern Munich in the Champions League this season (4), but they have only scored two of these. Arjen Robben has won all four of these penalties – no other player has won more than two. Franck Ribery has created more goals ...
Do not fear we have not entered a parallel universe - as much as it might just feel that way after looking at the respective Bayern Munich and Manchester United results this afternoon. As United were tearing apart Newcastle United away from home - eventually winning the game 4-0 to consolidate their position as the best team on their travels in the Premier League - the unbeatable Bayern Munich were beaten. They lost 1-0 to FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga - their first defeat in 53 games and the first time they have failed to score since that 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in last season’s Champions League. United will therefore surely go into the Champions League second leg against Bayern with quiet optimism of pulling off a shock. And that is when I would reel in the excitement and give you all the Bad News. Bayern Munich rested an abundance of first-teamers for the game - some for all of it, some for most. The likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Philipp Lahm were all told to stay at home while David Alaba, ...
Bayern clinch title with seven games to spare Bayern Munich won their 24 Bundesliga title last night following a 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin. The Bavarian giants have been near unstoppable under Pep Guardiola this season and clinch the title with a massive seven games to spare. Toni Kroos scored the opener after just six minutes, before Mario Gotza made it 2-0 with a clever header. Adrian Ramos netted a penalty for Hertha after a foul by Rafinha, but Bayern made sure of the win – and title when Franck Ribery scored late on. Bayern are also still on course to finish the season unbeaten.
Bayern Munich sealed their 24th German title in stylish fashion with a comfortable 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin on Tuesday. The Bavarian giants became the first Bundesliga club to win the title in March, defending their title with a record seven matches to spare thanks to goals from Toni Kroos, Mario Gotze and Franck Ribery. Kroos and Gotze struck within the first 15 minutes, setting the tone in a match that Bayern controlled, and although Adrian Ramos scored a second-half penalty for Hertha, Ribery wrapped up his side's win with a delightful chip from a tight angle 11 minutes from time. Bayern now boast a 25-point lead over nearest challengers Borussia Dortmund, who were held to a goalless draw by third-placed Schalke. Having won the league by 25 points under Jupp Heynckes last term, the champions will now aim to triumph by an even greater margin and their evolution under Pep Guardiola was evident in the German capital. A fluid start from Bayern saw Kroos stroke home from 12 yards following a deflected cross ...
BERLIN (AP) -- Bayern Munich defeated Hertha Berlin 3-1 to become the earliest Bundesliga champion in 51 years of the league on Tuesday, when the defending champion claimed its 24th German title. Toni Kroos scored in the sixth minute and Mario Goetze added a rare header in the 14th. Adrian Ramos pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 66th, but Bayern substitute Franck Ribery settled the issue in the 79th. The result ensures Pep Guardiola's side wraps up the title with seven games to spare in the Spaniard's first season as coach, beating the mark set in last year's record-breaking campaign by one game. It was also Bayern's 19th consecutive win, its 10th consecutive victory away from home, and it stretched its unbeaten run to 52 games. All are Bundesliga records. Second-place Borussia Dortmund failed to overcome Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann and had to settle for a 0-0 draw in the Ruhr derby despite dominating. Dortmund remains one point ahead of Schalke and slips 25 behind Bayern, the first side ...
Diego Costa extended his rich vein of form with a double as Atletico Madrid thumped AC Milan 4-1 to send the seven-times winners packing and secure a place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years. Costa, who struck in Atletico's 1-0 win at the San Siro in the first leg of the last-16 tie and has seven goals in five appearances in Europe's elite club competition, opened the scoring in the third minute with an acrobatic volley. Kaka levelled with a header in the 27th as Milan briefly took control of the match before Arda Turan's deflected effort sailed into the net five minutes before halftime to restore the home team's lead. Raul Garcia headed Atletico's third in the 71st minute and Costa struck again five minutes from time to seal a 5-1 aggregate success and crown a near-perfect night for the fans thronging Calderon stadium next to Madrid's Manzanares river. Image: Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara and Franck Ribery (right) tackle Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain during their ...
Arsenal exited the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the fourth year in a row after drawing at holders Bayern Munich. A dominant Bayern, leading 2-0 from the first leg, had a Javi Martinez volley ruled out for offside before the break. Bastian Schweinsteiger gave Bayern the lead from close range before Lukas Podolski shot high into the net to level the score on the night. Thomas Muller had a late penalty saved as Bayern won 3-1 on aggregate. Arsenal's European exit leaves them just two more chances to end a nine-year trophy drought this season. Arsene Wenger's men are in the FA Cup semi-final and seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. The damage was done in the first leg at Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal will rue an early missed penalty by Mesut Ozil and the dismissal of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Bayern Munich 1-1 Arsenal: Podolski goal not enough to worry dominant Germans... Bayern Munich were never really troubled tonight by Arsenal who did manage to stop their German rivals winning a 14th consecutive match. Bastian Schweinsteiger bagged the game's opening goal following clever work from Franck Ribery down Bayern's left. Lukas Podolski fouled Philipp Lahm for the Gunners' equaliser, but although everyone stopped playing, the referee never gave it, and the former Bayern forward went and slammed the ball inside the near post from a tight angle. Sadly for Arsenal though, it wasn't enough - and Bayern went through 3-1 on aggregate.
Champions League Watch: Milan, Arsenal dumped out; Bayern, Atletico progress Arsenal have been eliminated from this season’s Champions League, after a resilient 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich in Germany. The Gunners went into the second leg trailing by two unreplied goals and were looking to tear the history books. However, it was the hosts who grabbed the game by the scruff of its neck from kick-off, although the first half ended goalless. Bastian Schweinteiger gave Bayern the lead, after good work from Franck Ribery down the right. Lukas Podolski levelled for Arsenal almost immediately, smashing in an effort from a very tight angle. The Gunners failed to build momentum and there was time for late drama, as Lukasz Fabianski saved Thomas Muller’s penalty. In the other game of the night, Diego Costa grabbed a brace, as Atletico Madrid crushed AC Milan 4-1 (5-1) on aggregate, to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Arsenal battled hard but could only draw 1-1 away to Bayern Munich, who progress to the Uefa Champions League's last eight. The Gunners were given the runaround in a goalless first half at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, with chances few and far between as they sought to turn around Bayern's two-goal advantage from the first leg. Ten minutes after the restart, Bastian Schweinsteiger scored from Franck Ribery's left-wing cross and although Lukas Podolski quickly smashed in an equaliser, the Gunners could not produce the goals they needed and went out 3-1 on aggregate. At least they were not beaten, with Lukas Fabianski saving a late penalty from substitute Thomas Muller after Laurent Koscielny fouled Arjen Robben in the box. Arsene Wenger made three changes to the Arsenal team that started the 4-1 FA Cup win over Everton on Saturday. In came Koscielny, Podolski and Olivier Giroud in place of Kieran Gibbs (ankle), Yaya Sanogo (foot) and Mathieu Flamini, who dropped to the bench. Wojciech Szczesny was su ...

The 3 keys to Arsenal beating Bayern Munich Let’s not kid ourselves Arsenal fans, Bayern Munich are strong favourites to retain their Champions League crown this season for good reason. They may be without Franck Ribery, Shaqiri and Badstuber but they have an awesome array of talent and the Gunners, as Per Mertesacker declared, will need to perform brilliantly and for things to go our way if Arsenal are to make the quarter-finals. A good performance and result at the Emirates tonight will go a long way to achieving that and there are three key elements that I feel could swing the game in our favour. Firstly, the referee. I am not going on about bias or English teams being picked on. My name is not Manuel. What I mean is the style of refereeing we get tonight. If we get the sort of ref we had in our home game against Everton this season, Arsenal are in big trouble. They, like Bayern will, played a high pressing game which stopped us having time on the ball. The downside to that approach is that you leave ...

Bayern confirm Ribery surgery Bayern Munich have revealed that Franck Ribery will miss at least the next week after undergoing an operation on Thursday. The 30-year-old midfielder made his only competitive appearance of the year on Sunday as Bayern cruised to a 5-0 home win over Eintracht Frankfurt, netting his side's second goal. Ribery – who had been struggling with a muscular injury – had surgery on a trapped nerve in his gluteal muscles on Thursday. Bayern say he will remain at the clinic of club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt for the time being and a club spokesman confirmed the surgery. "Franck is suffering from compartment syndrome. We will know more after he's undergone further tests on Sunday," the club said. Bayern manager Pep Guardiola hopes Ribery "will return to training as soon as possible". The Bundesliga table-toppers will be heavy favourites to win at Nuremberg on Saturday, but the hosts have won their last two league matches – their only triumphs of the season. And Guardiola ...
Cristiano Ronaldo Is Not The Best; I Am’ Says France’s Franck Ribery Cristiano Ronaldo, despite scoring a staggering total of 69 goals in only 59 games in 2013, did not deserve the Ballon D’or award as the year’s Best Player. At least, that’s what one of his competitors, Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery now says. Cristiano Ronaldo won the coveted trophy for the first time last Monday, at an awards ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland, home base of the world football (aka soccer) governing body, FIFA. The final three nominees were Ronaldo, Ribery and Barcelona’s brilliant Lionel Messi, who had a grip on the trophy for the previous four years. Messi hasn’t said anything, but Ribery has not exactly extended his congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese superstar who leads Spain’s Real Madrid side. In fact, he feels that Europe’s Best Player last year was not Cristiano Ronaldo. It was Franck Ribery. “I won everything, with the team and individually. Ronaldo won nothing,” Ribery ...
Toni Kroos has signalled he could be ready to quit Bayern Munich after being linked with a move to Manchester United. David Moyes was recently spotted in Germany running the rule over Kroos and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus, and the Bayern midfielder, 24, admits he’s keeping his options open after talks stalled over a new deal. ‘I am unable to rule anything out,’ he told kicker-Sportmagazin. ‘I am under contract with Bayern Munich (until June 2015). Actually there are yet no further talks (regarding a new contract) scheduled. I will therefore fully focus on the second half of the season. ‘There are worse situations in life. I play for a top club, and under a top coach. I am pleased, and sometime in the future a decision will be made.’ Bayern currently have a raft of players competing in Kroos’ favoured position, with Mario Goetze, Thiago Alcantara, Xherdan Shaqiri, Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery all battling for first-team places.
Bayern go ten clear with win at Gladbach (AFP) Friday 24 January 2014 Bayern Munich went ten points clear in the Bundesliga with a convincing 2-0 win at third-placed Borussia Monchengladbach to extend their record unbeaten run to 42 matches. Germany midfielder Thomas Muller created Bayern's first for Mario Gotze after just seven minutes then netted a second-half penalty as the Bundesliga resumed after the winter break. With their main rivals all playing on Saturday, the European champions took the chance to tighten their stranglehold on the title as they played the first of three league games in ten days. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola sprang a surprise before kick-off at Borussia Park as striker Mario Mandzukic was left out of the squad for "poor performances in training" with midfielder Gotze starting up front. Injured France winger Franck Ribery sat out the game while Dutch star Arjen Robben only came on in the dying stages after recovering from a cut leg, but the Bavarians had few problems.

Further delays in Ribery trial 2014-01-22 22:14 Paris - A prosecutor has asked on Wednesday that French soccer internationals Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema be discharged of solicitation of an underage prostitute. "It is impossible for the accusation to prove that Franck Ribery was aware" that Zahia Dehar, a prostitute-turned-fashion model, was under 18 - the age of majority in France, prosecutor Jean-Julien Xavier-Rolai told the Correctional Court of Paris. Xavier-Rolin added that Benzema should also be discharged. Real Madrid striker Benzema and Bayern Munich forward Ribery, who were not attending the four-day trial, were being tried on charges of paying Dehar when she was aged 16 and 17. Ribery has admitted paying her for sex but said he did not know how old she was. Benzema has denied having any sexual relations with Dehar. Paying for sex is not illegal in France but underage prostitution is. Last December, the National Assembly passed a bill to fine prostitutes clients, but it still has to pass the ...

Is the Premier League slipping? Is the Premier League slipping? Just as Arsenal were arriving at Villa Park on Monday night, at the Ballon d'Or ceremony, Ruud Gullit and Fernanda Lima welcomed the final three members of the FIFA FIFPro World XI - Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo - onto the stage in Zurich's Kongresshaus. Their arrival confirmed what we had known all along: Though some 14 Premier League players had made the 55-strong list of nominees, for the third time in four years, not one of them would be elected to the final XI. Looking at the players selected ahead of them, it is hard to argue. The 50,000-plus professional players who voted had constructed quite a side. Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm and Franck Ribery from Bayern Munich; Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Daniel Alves and Messi of Barcelona; two players from Real Madrid - Sergio Ramos and Ronaldo - and two from Paris Saint-Germain in the form of Thiago Silva and Ibrahimovic. True, the midfield looked a little imbalanced. Perhaps ...
Bayern Munich could attempt to hijack Julian Draxler's proposed move from Schalke to Arsenal, it has emerged. The 20-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world, is thought to be closing in on a January switch to the Emirates Stadium, with Arsene Wenger keen to speed up a deal for one of his summer transfer targets. However, SportsDirect News understands that Bayern have also been keen to snap up the exciting attacking midfielder, and may themselves try to persuade him to move this month. ADVERTISEMENT Pep Guardiola's side are already well stocked in that position, with a world class selection of Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Thomas Mueller, Mario Goetze and Thiago Alcantara available to play behind main striker Mario Mandzukic, though the treble winners are keen to land German football's biggest prospect. Like Arsenal, Bayern initially wanted to pursue Draxler in the summer, but are now concerned that he is edging closer to a move to England. This would represent another major ...
Ronaldo scored 69 goals for Real Madrid and Portugal last year, and his stunning hat trick against Sweden in a decisive World Cup playoff was perhaps the defining individual performance. "There are no words to describe this moment," said Ronaldo, who was sobbing in tears after accepting the trophy with his young son, also named Cristiano, beside him on stage. He beat out Barcelona's Messi and France winger Franck Ribery, who helped Champions League winner Bayern Munich to a sweep of major titles. Germany dominated the other major awards, with goalkeeper Nadine Angerer named women's player of the year ahead of United States forward Abby Wambach, last year's winner, and Marta of Brazil. Voting was done by national team captains and coaches, plus selected journalists, in FIFA's 209 member countries who chose their top 3 preferences. In a tight race, Ronaldo received 1,365 points, Messi had 1,205 and Ribery got 1,127. US coach Jurgen Klinsmann voted Ribery first, followed by Gareth Bale and Radamel Falcao, wh ...

BALLON D'OR. . However, Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness says that there can only be one victor, Franck Ribery, with the implication being that too much importance is being attached to Ronaldo's heroics for Portugal in their World Cup play-off win over Sweden. "I would have absolutely no understanding of the situation if Franck did not win the Ballon d'Or. There is a whole year to be judged - not just one game."
HAVE YOUR SAY: Franck Ribery helped Bayern Munich to win 5 cups, Lionel Messi led Barcelona to La Liga title while Ronaldo didnt win anything with Real Madrid all last season! Who do you think deserve to win FIFA Ballon D’Or tonight?
Lionel Messi, Franck Ribery and Cristiano Ronaldo. It wasn't going to be anyone else on the three-man short list for the 2013 Ballon d'Or, which was announced by FIFA on Monday. The La Liga duo were a shoo-in for two of the spots, as they have been for the past six years (Messi has won four straight, and Ronaldo won in 2008), while Ribery has joined the creme de la creme thanks to the superb performances through the year that helped Bayern Munich complete their historic treble. Ever since the original short list was drawn up, the talented trio were the hot favourites to make the trip to Switzerland in January for the annual ceremony. The votes are in and have been counted. All that's left is for cases to be made for and against. Here's the case for CR7: Ballon d'Or Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible year surely makes him a no-brainer for the Ballon d'Or. Rigg Lionel Messi is still the Best Player in the world and deserves to retain his crown. Ledwith Franck Ribery's consistent performances give him real hope ...
France winger Franck Ribery, 30, is on the Ballon d'Or three-man shortlist after helping German giants Bayern Munich to five trophies - Bundesliga, German Cup, Champions League, Uefa Super Cup and Club World Cup - last year. Ribery averaged almost a goal every two games for club and country in 2013 but was considerably more effective in creating chances for others - he provided 18 assists and created 149 chances.
Franck Ribery could go on to make history if he wins the prestigious FIFA Ballon d'Or award on Monday and become the first ever Bayern Munich player to lift the award.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the world’s most in-form player by the end of 2013, while Franck Ribery was the poster boy of the globe’s greatest team over the calendar year. But above and beyond those achievements, Barcelona icon Lionel Messi proved once more that he remains the best there is and that he deserves a fifth straight Ballon d’Or title. It was by no means a vintage year for the Argentine, with his attempts to back up a phenomenal record of 91 goals in 2012 being frustrated by constant injury problems from April onwards. But one should not immediately overlook the magnificent achievements he was still able to rack up in a truncated 12 months. While Ronaldo spent most of 2013 flattering in the bigger games of Real Madrid and Portugal before his big moment in Stockholm in November, Ribery was part of a magnificent Bayern Munich side which would more than likely have swept all before them even had the Frenchman not been available to weave his own brand of magic. Messi, though, still shone enough to ...

Bayern Munich tore Werder Bremen to shreds in a 7-0 win that extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to seven points ahead of second-placed Bayer Leverkusen's meeting with Borussia Dortmund. Assani Lukimya gave Bayern a hand by scoring an own goal in the 21st minute, but Ballon d'Or candidate Franck Ribery soon took charge of the match to inspire Bayern to a convincing victory. Daniel Van Buyten made it two in the 27th minute before the Frenchman got his name on the scoresheet to give Bayern their biggest half-time advantage of the season so far. He then teed up Mario Mandzukic to make it four before Thomas Muller put Bayern 5-0 ahead. Ribery added a sixth before Mario Gotze completed the rout to both compound Bremen's misery and help assert Bayern's authority on the Bundesliga once again. Bremen started the game solidly but, once their defence was breached for the first time, with more than just a small portion of misfortune, the game transformed. Ribery sent in a low cross from the left and Luk ...
(Goal) Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery revealed he was "disappointed" by Mamadou Sakho's declaration that he would back Cristiano Ronaldo to be crowned Ballon d'Or winner. Ribery was instrumental in die Roten's unprecedented treble last season and recently helped France to the 2014 World Cup by impressing in a 3-2 aggregate play-off win against Ukraine. However, Ronaldo remains one of the firm favourites after an incredible performance record during 2013, with Liverpool defender Sakho citing that as the decisive reason behind his vote. "I would vote for Cristiano Ronaldo," the France international told beIN Sport on Monday. "He is a high-level player and athlete and the statistics of the Portuguese are really impressive. "It is obvious my heart would vote for Ribery, but the numbers don't lie." However, Ribery made clear he was not impressed with his international colleague's remarks, telling L'Equipe: "Sakho disappointed me. "He disappointed me about what he said recently. Anyway, that's how it is in fo ...

Ribery: France have to be in Brazil (FIFA.com) Thursday 14 November 2013 Franck Ribery may already be a long-established member of an elite group of the world's best footballers, thanks in no small part to his pace and individual ability, but even by his standards the past year has been extraordinary. The 30-year-old was a key component of the Bayern Munich side that won a domestic league and cup double, as well as triumphing in the Uefa Champions League, a success which earned his club a place at the forthcoming FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2013.

German Bundesliga Updates : Dortmund beaten as Bayern cruise Borussia Dortmund slipped four points behind Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title after a surprise 2-1 loss at Wolfsburg. Dortmund went ahead in first-half injury time through Marco Reus, but Ricardo Rodriguez equalised in the 56th minute and Ivica Olic gave the hosts the win with the second after 69 minutes. Bayern Munich set a new record of 37 games unbeaten with a comfortable 3-0 win over Augsburg. Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Muller grabbed the goals for the defending champions, who face Dortmund in a fortnight. Augsburg were rarely in the game and, given the difference in quality between the two sides, will not be looking forward to meeting Bayern again in the DFB-Pokal next month. Heung-Min Son came back to haunt his former club, with his first-ever Bundesliga hat-trick helping Bayer Leverkusen to a 5-3 victory over Hamburg.

Viktoria Plzen-Bayern Munich: Pep's men can book last-16 place The European champions have won all of their group stage matches so far and could ensure a place in the next round with another victory The defending champions sit three points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City at the top of Group D after three consecutive wins, scoring 11 goals and conceding just one. Franck Ribery's form has been key to Bayern's success so far, the France international winger is the German side's top scorer in the tournament having found the net three times.

Can this Arsenal team right a wrong? By Neil Ashton London – The great Champions League winners are easy to remember. No-one tires of talking about them and they left you wanting more.It felt as though Marcel Desailly, Zvonimir Boban and Paolo Maldini were re-inventing the game when their breathtaking Milan team were tearing Barcelona apart in 1994 at the Olympic Stadium in Athens. More than a decade later it was Barca who took the game to another level when Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi lifted the European Cup on three occasions. They are footballing gods. In May, Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Franck Ribery were added to the list of great names when Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

Manchester City suffered a dismal 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich during tonight's Champions League group game. Bayern, who are the tournaments current holders, were always expected to be tough opposition, but few will have expected them to deal with City in such a comfortable manner at the Etihad. It took just seven minutes for City, who had made four changes to the team that lost to Aston Villa at the weekend, to concede, with Franck Ribery finding the net with a shot that in truth, Joe Hart should have saved. From there on in things only got worse for the Manchester side, as Pep Guardiola's Bayern, despite not fielding a striker, treated fans to a masterclass. After the break things seemed to perk up for City as Bayern momentarily took their feet off the peddle, but with 56 minutes gone the German champions doubled their lead, Thomas Muller this time finding the target after losing Gael Clichy with alarming ease. Four minutes later former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben smashed home an effort at J ...
Joe Hart's poor form continued as Manchester City's England goalkeeper suffered a nightmare in this comprehensive Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich at Etihad Stadium. First he fumbled Franck Ribery's long-range effort into the net as the holders took an early lead, then he was too easily beaten at his near post after the break as Arjen Robben wrapped up a thoroughly deserved win for Pep Guardiola's side. Thomas Muller scored Bayern's second in between Hart's errors and a fine late strike from City substitute Alvaro Negredo could not put any gloss on a wretched night for Manuel Pellegrini and his team. Former City defender Jerome Boateng was sent off for hauling down Yaya Toure as the hosts mounted a late rally of sorts, but there was little by way of consolation to be salvaged from this experience. And after a display that only underlined the decline in his performances, much of the spotlight will be on Hart, who is simply making too many mistakes for the comfort of club and country. Pellegrini's p ...

Matthias Sammer has hit out at Bayern Munich's early-season form, claiming the players are hiding behind the appointment of Pep Guardiola. The Bavarians earned a 2-0 home win over Hannover on Saturday through second-half goals from Mario Mandzukic and Franck Ribery, but remain two points behind Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. With Bayern having lost the DFL-Supercup to BVB already this term, Sammer has warned the Roten stars to improve their work ethic on the pitch rather than hand all responsibility for results to their new coach. "We have to get going," the 46-year-old fumed in an interview with Bild. "It's so lethargic and it cannot go on. We need to get out of the comfort zone.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Stuttgart: Gomez at the double as Bavarians survive Schwaben fightback to complete treble Bayern Munich wrapped up the first treble in German football with a 3-2 DFB-Pokal final victory over southern rivals Stuttgart. Jupp Heynckes' men, but a Thomas Muller penalty and Mario Gomez's double ensured that the Bavarians made history in the 68-year-old's final game in charge of the club. Martin Harnik struck twice late on to ensure a nervy finish but the European champions held on. The match started at break-neck pace and, unsurprisingly, it was Bayern who crafted the first chance, with Arjen Robben swapping passes with Franck Ribery and bearing down on Sven Ulreich, who was able to palm the Dutchman's cross-shot around the post. Gradually, though, Stuttgart were able to get a foothold in the game and, were it not for some wasteful finishing, they could well have gone ahead. Their first sight of goal came just before the 10-minute mark, when Ibrahima Traore peeled off his marker and sent a gr ...
When Arjen Robben latched onto a flick by Franck Ribery and danced his way past the Dortmund defence in that way that is uniquely his, before stabbing the ball wide of Weidenfeller to win the European Cup for Bayern Munich it was just more than redemption. The Dutchman has many critics, and I cannot understand why they are so vocal of a footballer who is one of the most gifted match-winners in world football. I have always been a big fan of Arjen Robben because of what he does on a football field. I still hold Peter Kenyon responsible for Manchester United missing out on his considerable talents and him ending up at Stamford Bridge. The former United Chief Executive took up the same role at Chelsea, paying double United's agreed fee with PSV. You will imagine that after his missed penalty in last season's final it felt like Robben owed his club one, and he duly delivered, making one and scoring the winner. It is absolutely fitting that Bayern Munich are the winners of the Champions League. They are by far ...
Franck Ribery has stressed that he is happy with life at Bayern Munich and added that he is not interested in a move to Real Madrid. The France international was close to joining the Santiago Bernabeu side in the past and Madrid president Florentino Perez's announcement that Zinedine Zidane will be in charge of their transfers from this summer fuelled speculation that they could make another move for Ribery ahead of the 2013-14 campaign.

"Bayern Munich were magnificent but the man who should take all the plaudits is manager Jupp Heynckes. He has changed this team completely, he has got them fitter than Dortmund. He has got wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben so fit. He has changed their mentality and he deserves this win."
Arjen Robben scored in the 89th minute to give Bayern Munich a 2-1 win over German rival Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in the Champions League final, ending four years of frustration for his team in Europe's biggest tournament. Robben ran onto Franck Ribery's backheeled flick in the penalty area and sent the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller to give Bayern its first Champions League victory since 2001. The German team had lost two of the last three finals. Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead in the 60th minute at Wembley Stadium before Ilkay Gundogan evened the score with a penalty kick eight minutes later after defender Dante fouled Marco Reus.
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions This season was the perfection of the Bayern system. Still that familiar 4-2-3-1, but with personal tweaks. Dante becomes the center of the defense, better than anything Bayern had in the past. The rise of David Alaba on the left wing turned Franck Ribery into a much more dangerous player, while Philip Lahm has gotten more attacking responsibility with Arjen Robben missing most of the time. Toni Kroos is injured, which means Robben will start, but it’s been a different, more mature, and less selfish Robben this season, blending in instead of trying to steal the show. No team works harder than Dortmund as a whole unit, and Kevin Grosskreutz who’ll be starting for Gotze is that kind of physical freak who can run up and down for 90 minutes without tiring, although his lack of play in recent times might effect that. For Dortmund to win it’s going to take more than simply moments of brilliance from Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski, but especially a perfect ...

‘Bayern level with Barca, Madrid’ Franck Ribery has enthused that Pep Guardiola’s confirmation as Coach for next season has put Bayern Munich level with Barcelona and Real Madrid. Guardiola has been confirmed as taking over at the Allianz Arena from next term, much to French winger Ribery’s pleasure. “Guardiola is Guardiola.

Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery slapped with two-match cup ban
Bayern Munich ran out 2-0 winners, in an efficient performance, against basement side Augsburg, in the Bavaria derby. Goals from Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez wrapped up the win, which sees Jupp Heynckes' side stretch their lead to nine points ahead of second-placed Bayer Leverkusen who play Hannover on Sunday. The home side caused early problems and inside the first five minutes, Dante was forced into making a goal-saving intervention, stopping Sascha Molders from tapping home a near post cross. Knowledge Musona then tested Manuel Neuer minutes later, but his well-struck effort was collected impressively by the German keeper. After 24 minutes Bayern sprang into life, and Mario Mandzukic had Augsburg's Mohamed Amsif scrambling to his right, as the Croatian's scuffed strike trickled past the post. Seconds later, Franck Ribery whipped in a front post cross, but despite good movement from Mandzukic, the lone striker directed his effort straight at the opposition keeper. In spite of their early resilience, Gi ...
