Bayern veto Ribery birthday party

Apr 09, 2013, 01:14 IST |

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer and head coach Jupp Heynckes have postponed Franck Ribery's birthday celebrations until after this week's Champions League match against Juventus.

Ribery turned 30 on Sunday and his teammates had planned to throw the attacker a surprise party at Italian restaurant Hugo’s in the evening.

Captain Philipp Lahm informed the club about the team’s plans in advance, as is customary for these kind of events, yet Sammer and Heynckes decided against giving permission as they want Bayern to focus on the second leg of the quarter-final tie against Juventus instead.
