The experienced defender is eagerly anticipating Wednesday's international friendly as he prepares to take on his Bayern team-mate
The France international has been in sublime form for the Bavarians this season, netting four goals in 15 appearances, and the Germany skipper is delighted to be part of the same side as the tricky winger.
The Bayern and Germany will lock horns with Ribery in Wednesday's international friendly between his country and France, and the wing-back is looking forward to the encounter.
"I will try and push him to the limit," he continued.
"Although I realise that it will be difficult to completely eliminate him, especially when he approaches you at full speed."
Wednesday's match at the Stade de France is scheduled to kick off at 21:00CET.
