The France international admitted that his youth coaches believed his size would be a hindrance to his career, but he is happy to see that Rudi Garcia's team are now prospering
Major loss for Lille, but in that time when Ribery was a youth player, teams were looking for big tall players!
I feel more teams are looking for shorter players [maybe I should become a footballer then!]
I'm screwed. I'm 6'2" in the morning and around 6'00" at night. I can only hope to play for a team like Stoke and Sunderland........I guess my poor skill level won't matter either then.
