PRESS SPECULATION

Posted on 28 November 2005  - 12:00

Reports are circulating in France that we are interested in Marseille midfielder and French Under-21 international Franck Ribery.

Reports are circulating in France that we are interested in Marseille midfielder and French Under-21 international Franck Ribery.

Most of these reports have been generated with quotes from our Sporting Director Damien Comolli’s previews of the European Under-21 Championship play-off between England and France.

I think I mentioned four players to watch - it doesn’t mean they are on my Christmas shopping list!

The first leg of the play-off was at White Hart Lane and Damien happily used his knowledge of the French game to alert fans of the principal talents within the French squad - including Ribery - as we generated interest in that match.

Damien commented: “Any stories linking us with a move for Ribery are pure speculation. Of course, we all know he is a wonderful player and we all enjoyed watching him at the Lane.
