Ribéry sparkles in attack and defence

Postby FCBayernNews » Sun May 19, 2013 12:40 pm

It was a pleasure and a privilege to witness Franck Ribéry's equalising goal on Saturday, making the score 3-3 after 53 minutes of the Bundesliga encounter in Mönchengladbach. Philipp Lahm clipped a cross to the far corner of the box, and Ribéry smacked home a sumptuous volley. The French winger was at his scintillating best at Borussia Park, leading his markers a merry dance all afternoon.

It came as no surprise to find Ribéry directly involved in all his side's goals in the action-packed 4-3 away win. Boss Jupp Heynckes made no secret of his approval: "Franck's having a superb season, probably the best of his career," the coach told fcbayern.de, "it's no real surprise he scored twice today." The winger provided the assists for the other two goals and now tops the league chart with 15 this term.

"Franck has taken another step forward. He's absolutely world-class and there's nothing to discuss about that," agreed Bastian Schweinsteiger. Heynckes is particularly impressed with Ribéry's new-found enthusiasm for defence. "He's been unbelievably team-oriented the whole season. That's where he's come on incredibly."

In attack, Ribéry is always capable of magic moments and true class. Astonishingly enough, FCB have never lost in the Bundesliga whenever he has scored, a stat now running to 46 league fixtures, with an overall record of 44 wins and two draws. This extraordinary streak continued in Mönchengladbach despite the visitors falling 3-1 behind after just 10 minutes.

Ribéry's 18th-minute goal to cut the deficit was as sure an indication as you could want that Bayern would not lose. And his second to make it 3-3 was a wonder to behold. "I just caught it well," the player said modestly, "it's good for me and for the team." Franck now intends to maintain his stunning form at Wembley next Saturday and in Berlin a week later. "He'll be enormously important for both finals," stated Heynckes.
