Ribery hopes to end his career at Bayern Munich — and win the Champions League one more time before he hangs up his boots.
“I always want to play. I am always hungry, I always want to win. But I know by now that I sometimes need a break. I can understand being benched after three or four games.”
“I want to win the Champions League once again. That is my dream. That is my adrenaline, my motivation,” Ribery said, adding that he has not thought about whether winning Europe’s biggest competition would also put an end to his career with one year left on his deal at Bayern.
“I can’t say if that’s my last season. I am fit and healthy. I can play two, three more years. I love football. I don’t want to sit at home, I want to play. I would love to retire at Bayern. I would love to stay here until the end of my career, but a move abroad is also in the back of my head.
