Franck Ribery Criticised For Buying £1,000 Steak Covered In Gold, He Responds In Outrageous Fashion

Franck Ribery bought a £1,000, gold-covered steak earlier this week at Salt Bae's famous restaurant and well, it didn't go down well with some of his 3.9 million followers on Instagram.

The Bayern Munich winger, who is set to leave the club this summer, welcomed 2019 with a nice, juicy steak made by the very best.

He posted the following video on his social media with the caption: "No better way to start the year than with a dash of salt and a visit to my Turkish brother."

It, of course, sparked a massive reaction but Ribery is far from concerned, posting the following response to his video.

"For 2019, let's dot the i's and cross the t's... Let's start with the jealous, the haters, those clearly born from a condom with a hole in:" he said.

"F*ck your mothers, your grandmothers and even your family tree. I owe you nothing. My success is above all thanks to god, me, and my loved ones who believed in me.

"For the others, you're nothing but pebbles in my socks!"

This isn't the first time Ribery has made the headlines in recent weeks. He admitted that he was involved in an altercation with a reporter back in November.

Patrick Guillou, who claimed on TV that the 35-year-old winger was responsible for Borussia Dortmund scoring twice against Bayern Munich.

In response, the former France international allegedly 'slapped and insulted' the reporter, Bild reports.

According to the German newspaper, the Bundesliga champions issued a statement regarding the incident.

"Franck Ribéry has informed us that he had an altercation with his compatriot Patrick Guillou, whom he has known well for many years," the club said.

"We agreed with Patrick Guillou that we would speak at a meeting about how to get this matter out of the way."
