Ribery urges Bayern Munich to stick together

Franck Ribery has urged Bayern Munich to stick together after failing to win their last two fixtures.

Carlo Ancelotti's perfect start to life at the Allianz Arena came to an abrupt end when Bayern were beaten 1-0 by Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last week, before they had to settle for a 1-1 Bundesliga draw with Cologne.

Nevertheless, Ribery sees no reason for panic and has told his team-mates to keep working together as they look to return to winning ways after the international break.

"We have to play like a team again," Ribery told Bild.

"We are a great team, a really good group of players. We all have to work together and fight together. And we are more than capable of doing just that.

"We have to forget about these two bad results as soon as possible."

The 33-year-old's contract with Bayern is due to expire at the end of the season and he remains in the dark over his future with the reigning Bundesliga champions for now.

"We have not held talks over a contract renewal yet," Ribery added.

The winger has netted two goals in five Bundesliga appearances this term, while creating five more.
