Ribery wants to end career at Bayern
Franck Ribery has told L'Equipe his current campaign at Bayern Munich is his "best season" yet and that he hopes to end his career in Bavaria having left his "mark".
Ribery, 30, has scored ten goals and provided 15 assists in 27 appearances during Bayern's romp to the Bundesliga title this term, while he has also played a key role in their runs to the Champions League and DFB-Pokal finals.
Although he was named Bundesliga Player of the Year in 2007-08, his first campaign in Germany, the France international believes he has improved on that display this season.
"You could say it's my best season. I'm happy. I'm content," he said. "I'm very happy here. My family too. Truly. Bayern is an extraordinary club, made up of magnificent people, who respect you for who you are.
"I really count on finishing my career here. I would like to leave here as a great man. Having left my mark. I imagine the last match at the Allianz Arena. I would like a moment that stays with you for life."
Ribery believes the return of his very best form owes much to Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who will be replaced by Pep Guardiola in the summer.
"We're going to miss him a lot. That's also why we want to finish well with him by winning all these trophies," Ribery said. "He's put in a huge amount of work. He's a great man, and a great coach. We're united by a very strong bond. He's a very nice man.
"He's been able to give me my confidence back, help me rediscover the joy of playing as was the case with Ottmar Hitzfeld and Jurgen Klinsmann. I'd just come off the back of two difficult seasons with [Louis] van Gaal. I feel good, and he's had a lot to do with it."
