The Frenchman was criticized for eating a £1000 gold-coated steak in a famous restaurant owned by celebrity Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, known as Salt Bae
Franck Ribery will be handed a ‘heavy fine’ by Bayern Munich for the way he responded to online criticism to a video of him eating a £1000 gold-coated steak.
Ribery posted a video on social media showing him in a steakhouse owned by celebrity Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, known famously as Salt Bae, and rubbing his hands before getting stuck into the expensive piece of meat.
The Frenchman hit back at those making judgments, with a profanity-laced outburst on social media, which included him telling his critics they are ‘born because of a broken condom.’
“Let’s start with the envious, the angry, surely born because of a broken condom,” read the first part of Ribery’s rant.
“F*ck your mothers, your grandmothers and your whole family tree,” Ribery added, having taken care to sanitise the French word ‘n*quez’.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic made it clear that Ribery did not pay the bill himself because he had been invited to the restaurant, but confirmed on Sunday the player had been dealt with and a large fine would be issued following his conduct.
“I had a long talk with Franck and I let him know that we would impose a heavy fine on him and he accepted it,” Salihamidzic told journalists in Qatar, where Bayern are on a winter break training camp.
“He used words that we, FC Bayern, cannot accept and that Franck does not have the right to use, as a role-model and player of FC Bayern.”
