Ribery insists he's happy at Fiorentina after Torino draw

Franck Ribery was happy with Fiorentina's 1-1 draw with Torino last night.

His future at the Viola seems uncertain, as the former Bayern Munich star admitted he would like a return to the Bundesliga.

"I'm happy an content in Florence, I feel good with the club and the fans," he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Sometimes it's hard because we're in a difficult situation and that's my mentality.

“If I will stay? You must talk to the club. I'm ready and available, it's a question for the club."

Sporting director Daniele Prade said before the match: “He's [Ribery] our leader. He will tell us what he wants to do in the future but this is not the right time. We will talk about it in a more serene moment.

“He's a leader, a man of important values and who must give us more from all points of view.

“Young players grow with him, because he transmits important values."
