“Six German championship titles, five cup triumphs, the Champions League, the FIFA Club World Cup, the UEFA Supercup – Bayern’s biggest triumphs in the last few years are closely linked with Franck Ribery,” said club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
“He’s both a key player and a crowd-pleaser, so we’re happy we’ve extended the contract with Franck by another year.”
Ribery has appeared 11 times in all competitions this season, scoring two goals and provided eight assists.
