Ribery: Win more important than 100th goal

The Frenchman reached a century of goals in Bayern’s win over Leverkusen on Saturday but insists the team’s success comes before personal milestones


Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery says that his side’s 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen is more important than his 100th goal for the club which sealed it.

The Frenchman struck just after half-time at the Allianz Arena to give his side the three points against Roger Schmidt’s men, who have been flying high in the Bundesliga this term.

Ribery is delighted to have overcome strong opposition but insists that the team’s success is more important than personal milestones.

“It was a very important win in a tough game,” he told the club’s official website.

“Leverkusen are a good team. It’s too bad that we didn’t get a second goal. My 100th goal is good for me personally but above all, the team is very important.

“We still have four games ahead of us in 2014 and we want to win them all.”

Arjen Robben, meanwhile, commented that the game in Bavaria was not as entertaining as many were expecting it to be.

“It was perhaps less spectacular than expected,” the Dutchman added.

“There were two teams who play very attacking football but both of us paid attention because they knew that we have a lot of quality and lots of pace.”
