Ribery over World Cup disappointment

05 August 2014, 16:05

Nairobi - Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery insists he is over his World Cup woe and is focused on doing his best for his club.

The Frenchman missed out on a spot at the tournament in Brazil due to a back injury and has been working hard in rehabilitation to get ready for the new season.

The 32-year-old return to action for the Bavarians Telekom Cup over the weekend as his side beat both Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg.

"I wanted to be there [at the World Cup in Brazil], but I have got it out of my system," he told reporters following the 3-0 win over Die Wolfe.

"I'm fit again, but before and after training I have to get my back checked, get treatment, get a massage. But it's good.

"I was in top shape for two and a half years -- I was in really good form. After my injury at the start of the year, I lost my rhythm -- but I'm now back on the right track."

New signing Robert Lewandowski continued his impressive pre-season for Bayern as he struck twice in the win over Wolfsburg.

And Ribery is delighted that his new team-mate is settling in so quickly, adding: "It's good for us and him.

"It gives him self-confidence. I hope we'll have a great season together and win several trophies again."
