Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery has committed his long-term future to the club after signing a new one-year contract that promises to keep him at the Allianz Arena until 2019.
Ribery’s previous deal was due to expire this summer, but the 35-year-old midfielder has now put pen to a paper over a new contract which will see him remain at the club for a further 12 months.
The Frenchman joined Bayern in 2007 and has since gone on to score 117 goals in 385 appearances for the Bundesliga giants across all competitions.
“We are very pleased that Franck will be retained,” sports director Hasan Salihamidzic told the club’s official website.
“This season Franck has proved once again in the Bundesliga as well as in the Champions League and the DFB Cup outstanding achievements he is capable of and what a great quality he has. He is also one of our crowd pleasers.”
Ribery added: “I am very happy to have another year for this big club to play. Munich has long been home to my family and me, so I’m very proud to be wearing the Bayern jersey in the new season.”
Ribery has helped the Bavarians to 21 trophies, including eight Bundesliga titles and the 2013 Champions League.
