Ribery 'p****d off' by persistent injury problems

The ex-France international is bitterly frustrated that he is once again out of action and has no idea when he will be fit to return

Bayern Munich attacker Franck Ribery has admitted that he is fed up with his persistent injury problems.

The 31-year-old missed this summer’s World Cup due to a back problem and then picked up a knee injury that saw him sidelined for the start of his club’s 2014-15 campaign.

Ribery did make his comeback in last weekend’s 2-0 Bundesliga win over Stuttgart, scoring once after coming off the bench midway through the second half.

However, his knee problem flared up again this week and he consequently missed the 1-0 Champions League win over Manchester City on Wednesday.

“This really p*sses me off. It is very annoying,” Ribery told Kicker. “I don’t know yet how long I will be out of action.”

Ribery, who was one of the key players in Bayern’s treble success in 2013, made 39 appearances in all competitions last season, but has had to settle for just 23 minutes of game time so far this term.
