Ribery targets return to top form

The winger made his comeback on Saturday and is hoping for an extended run of appearances in a bid to hit top gear

​Franck Ribery has targeted a swift return to top form following his first game for Bayern Munich in over a month after suffering a knee injury.

The France winger came on as a second-half substitute as the Bundesliga champions thumped Werder Bremen 6-0 on Saturday – his only outing since a goalscoring display in the 2-0 win over Stuttgart last month.

“I felt good,” Ribery said. “Now I need to string together games to regain my rhythm and thus quickly reach my best level.

“The fact that we can play every three days can be beneficial to me. My knee is holding firm. Now I hope to really play, play and play.”

Pep Guardiola’s side sit four points clear at the summit and are still unbeaten in the league this season.
