Ribéry happy to ride his luck

Published: Wednesday 31 March 2010, 0.05CET
Franck Ribéry said he was "lucky to score" after his deflected free-kick drew FC Bayern München level against Manchester United FC before Ivica Olić's late goal earned a 2-1 victory in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg. "This goal is so good for me because my season has been marred by injury," Ribéry said. "I haven't played three games in a row all season, but everything seems to be coming back. Everything is possible [in the second leg]."
