Ribery: Bayern can cope with busy schedule

The France international is looking forward the next few weeks and has little doubt that the Bavarians will not be troubled by their packed fixture list
Franck Ribery is confident that Bayern Munich have what it takes to cope with their busy fixture list in the next few weeks.

The Bundesliga leaders have games against Schalke, Wolfsburg, Arsenal, Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund coming up, and the Frenchman is looking forward to what could prove to be a crucial stage of the season.

"I actually like it when we play a lot of games. I missed the 'English weeks'. This is more fun than training. It's about time things kick off again," Ribery told Bild.

"Bayern have a strong team and we are used to this rhythm. I even think that we are better when we play a game every three days.

"The important thing is that we start this period on a high. We must beat Schalke and Wolfsburg."

Bayern take on Schalke on Saturday, with kick-off scheduled at 18:30CET.
