The former FCB star says that the Bundesliga champions would be wasting their energy chasing the England star as they have plenty of wide talent
The winger broke into the England set-up and has been touted as a transfer target for Manchester United, while Bayern have rarely been shy when it comes to pursuing Dortmund’s most valuable assets. Ribery ended a 12-year association with Bayern before joining Fiorentina on a free transfer for 2019-20.
likes of Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski, leave Bayern amply stocked in attacking areas.
“Sancho is a good player, but Bayern have enough good players in this position – where should he play?” Ribery said in an interview with Sport Bild .
“There is Muller, Gnabry, Perisic, Coman, Coutinho, Lewandowski. There is a lot of competition. I hope Sancho confirms his good year, but there would be little room for him in the Bayern squad.”
“Serge is still young, but he has character, personality,” Ribery said. “He plays without fear.”
“After his four goals against Tottenham, more is expected, but Serge is a man, not a machine. “It’s not easy to show top performances in every game, but Serge will continue on his way without putting too much pressure [on himself].” Ribery also feels the burgeoning alliance between star striker Lewandowski and on-loan Barcelona playmaker Coutinho will continue to yield handsome returns.
