'Ribery one of the best in the world'
USMNT starlet Julian Green says he is loving every minute of playing alongside Franck Ribery for FC Bayern München in preseason.

"I'm very happy to play with him, to have the chance […] It's always important for me to score, but tomorrow's another day."

Although not thought to be serious, the 27-year-old is not expected to be fit in time for Tuesday's pre-season friendlies against Chemnitzer FC and Hessen Kessel.
