Ribery: Bayern are 'a lot better now' compared to 2010

The Frenchman feels that the Bavarians have made ample progress since losing the Champions League final two years ago, and is looking forward to the "biggest game of his career"
Franck Ribery believes that Bayern Munich have made significant progress since losing the 2010 Champions League final as they prepare for the upcoming showpiece against Chelsea on May 19 at the Allianz Arena.

The Bundesliga giants were beaten 2-0 by Inter two years ago, but Ribery is adamant that the current Bayern squad are an improvement on the last FCB team to make it to the Champions League final.

"We are a lot better now than we were in 2010. We are lot more relaxed. We don't worry too much and we enjoy playing football again," Ribery stated to Kicker.

"The coach plays a big role in how we've changed. The players have a lot of faith in him. He creates a very pleasant atmosphere."

"Obviously, there's the World Cup and European Championship, but this will be the biggest game of my career. We have everything to win, but could lose it all as well.

Saturday's encounter against Chelsea in Munich kicks off at 20.45CET.
