I want to stay at Bayern Munich, says Ribery

I want to stay at Bayern Munich, says Ribery

The Bundesliga resumed Friday after the winter break with Bayern Munich going 14 points clear after a 3-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayern Munich's players poses during the UEFA Champions League football match between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich on September 27, 2017 at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

Leverkusen warmed up for Bayern with a 2-2 draw in a friendly against third-tier Preussen Muenster as Argentina striker Lucas Alario netted both goals following his recovery from a groin injury.

In further team news, Heynckes said: "Joshua Kimmich makes the squad but he has had a cold and back problems so I will have to weigh up whether he starts as well".

Coach Jupp Heynckes sent on winter signing Sandro Wagner for his second Bayern debut - he made four Bundesliga appearances for the senior side in the 2007-08 season - but James stole the limelight with his ideal free kick into the top left corner.

"I don't think it changes that much [about how they play]", the Bayern boss said.

Bayern were five points adrift in the league when Heynckes, 72, replaced Carlo Ancelotti at the start of October, but built up a commanding lead as key rivals RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund faltered.

Flores committed to Espanyol
I'm in a great city and am involved in one of the best leagues in the world. "I don't have to explain anything else". Flores had been expected to tell his current club Espanyol that he was bound for the Premier League strugglers.

"He's very ambitious and very disciplined, " Heynckes said.

"I have a dream club, but I won't say who and if I keep working hard, I'm sure it will work someday".

However, Rodriguez sealed the win for the Bundesliga leaders in stoppage time with a attractive free-kick that found the top corner to make it 3-1 to the Bavarians. "Leverkusen are young and talented and they attacked today".

"It is a game with a lot of elements that make football attractive".

With six goals and four assists, Leverkusen's outstanding player in the first half of the season was 20-year-old Jamaican winger Leon Bailey, who has thrived since joining from Belgian club Genk last January.

However, Heynckes warns there is plenty of talent in Bayer's ranks, pointing to Germany winger Julian Brandt and teenager Kai Havertz, 18, who are both risky in front of goal.
