Bayern not "weakening" on Ribery stance

June 29, 2009

Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness is insistent the club will not budge on their refusal to sell Franck Ribery.

France playmaker Ribery is a target for Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona but Hoeness is determined to keep the former Marseille man in Bavaria.

"Did you ever think that we would give in?'' he asked. "Have we ever shown signs of weakening?

"Franck will be on our training field on July 1.''
