Klinsmann: No Ribery exit

11 February 2009 07:26
Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann has warned Real Madrid that Franck Ribery is not for sale at any price. The France international's future at the Allianz Arena was brought into question earlier in the week following claims from Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer that the player was free to join Real for the right price. But Klinsmann has attempted to diffuse the situation by claiming the winger will not be leaving the reigning Bundesliga champions any time soon. "He is not for sale. We are sure Franck will stay for us for a long time," he said. "We are giving him the sense of well-being he needs to naturally unfold himself and he really feels the appreciation at FC Bayern. "Frank is an exceptional footballer, a true world-class player and we are happy to have him."
