The 33-year-old French winger signed a one-year contract extension with Bayern Munich on November 27 having overcome injury setbacks to reclaim his regular starting berth in Carlo Ancelotti’s team.

The new deal will keep Franck Ribery at the Allianz Arena until 2018 and he has vowed to win more laurels at the German capital outfit starting with this season as they lead RB Leipzig with three points at the top of Bundesliga table.

“This [being fit] is the most important thing for me. I’m well again, I’m fit again, I’m back at a hundred per cent. I’m playing well again – that’s great,” Ribery told Bild.

“The moment we extended the contract was very nice. A year more with Bayern – this is great.

“What happens after 2018, I do not know, but first the next one and a half years will be nice.

“With Uli Hoeness, with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, with the team, with the fans. Hopefully we will win many titles.”

Ribery has made over 300 competitive appearances for Bayern since joining the club from Ligue 1 side Marseille in 2007, winning six league titles, five German Cups, one German League Cup, three German Super Cups, the Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

Bayern return to domestic league action on January 20 at the Dreisamstadion where they face SC Freiburg.
