However, Ribery maintains that he is fully focused on his club career now, and claims that he has the blessing of France boss Didier Deschamps to retire from the international scene.
"I have already said before I have retired from international duty and I will not go back on my decision," he told Die Welt.
"I have discussed this with France coach Deschamps and we reached an agreement on it.
"I want to focus completely on Bayern Munich in the future. That's all I want to say about the matter. I am not going to get involved in all the politics surrounding my decision."
Ribery earned 81 caps in an eight-year international career.
