Ribery: I was too small for Lille

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

The story is too old to be commented.

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.
