Oh god, the press do get excited about the littlest things. The slightest little crumb can somehow be turned into a baker’s window display once they set their minds to it. Read on though, because this particular story is at least amusing, if only because of its total lack of credibility.
So, here we have Franck Ribery – great player, much sought after and all that – who says “Bayern is obviously one of the biggest and best clubs in the world. Obviously there are other clubs who would be a dream: Real Madrid and Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United.”
And guess what? Yep, the Bayern man is supposedly ‘dreaming’ of playing for us.
The left winger also says “I certainly love Real Madrid because of their great tradition, but I feel happy here at Bayern. We will have to wait and see what the future holds.” Although that bit must’ve fallen on deaf ears because it didn’t suit the headline.
