    Franck Ribery releases lengthy statement on his temper tantrum during Bayern Munich 3 – Anderlecht 0

    Bayern Munich 3 – Anderlecht 0

    It was a smooth night for Bayern Munich as they beat Anderlecht 3-0 in the group stages of the Champions League.

    Carlo Ancelotti’s side bounced back from their defeat at Hoffenheim on Saturday to beat Anderlecht thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara and Josh Kimmich.

    The Belgian side were down to 10 men from the 11th minute.

    What should have been a nice and easy night for Carlo Ancelotti went a little pear shaped when he took off Franck Ribery on 78 minutes.

    Thomas Muller was introduced in his place and the crowd whistled the substitution.

    Ribery meanwhile, reacted by throwing his shirt down in disgust.

    After the 3-0 Bayern win, Carlo Ancelotti said: “I don’t understand the reaction and I will have to ask him. He was upset. But he already had a yellow card and I wanted to give him a break. His performance was good. Perhaps he didn’t think about it.”

    Franck Ribery releases lengthy statement on his temper tantrum

    On Wednesday afternoon, Franck Ribery released a lengthy statement on Instagram.

    It came alongside a picture of the French winger looking up to the Bayern motto of “Mia San Mia”.

    Ribery’s statement translated is as follows:

    “I have always been one of the honest and loyal players in this business, I respect the fans and I respect the club I love.

    The throwing of my wet jersey from last night has nothing to do with disrespect, or anything else that I am accused of by people who believe or pretend to know me.

    This wet jersey, in which I have been giving everything for more than ten years, with all my impulsiveness, my victory, and with whom we have achieved so much.

    Some will never understand what it means to give everything to their club and I’m sorry for them.

    As long as I stand in the field, I will defend our colours, Franck Ribéry, and be involved in every game with all my passion.

    Because I love football, out of love for our followers and to make many fans happy in the world.

    With the help of our incredible fans, their love for the club and their passion, we will continue to write a beautiful story together in the future!

    WE ARE WHO WE ARE! 💪🏼🔴

    Ich war immer einer der ehrlichen und loyalen Spieler in diesem Geschäft, ich respektiere die Fans und ich respektiere den Club, den ich liebe. Der Wurf meines nassen Trikots von letzter Nacht hat nichts mit Respektlosigkeit zu tun, oder irgendetwas anderem, dass mir vorgeworfen wird von Leuten, die glauben oder vortäuschen mich zu kennen. Dieses nasse Trikot, in dem ich seit mehr als 10 Jahren alles gebe, mit all meiner Impulsitivät, meinem Siegeswillen und mit dem wir soviel erreicht haben. Manche werden es nie verstehen, was es bedeutet, alles für seinen Club zu geben und das tut mir leid für sie. Solange ich auf dem Feld stehe, werde ich, Franck Ribéry, unsere Farben verteidigen und in jedem Spiel mit all meiner Leidenschaft bei der Sache sein. Weil ich den Fußball liebe, aus Liebe zu unseren Anhängern und um viele Fans auf der Welt glücklich zu machen. Mit Unterstützung unserer unglaublichen Fans, ihrer Liebe zum Club und ihrer Leidenschaft werden wir auch in Zukunft gemeinsam eine schöne Geschichte schreiben! MIA SAN MIA! 💪🏼🔴
