Franck Ribery And Arjen Robben Sign Off From Bayern Munich With Goals
Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben found the perfect way to say goodbye to Bayern Munich with both getting themselves on the scoresheet to help Bayern win the Bundesliga title again.
Nothing lasts forever and as good as they are not even Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben can change that with their time at Bayern Munich coming to an end.
Ribery joined Bayern for €25 million in 2007, having spent a year in Marseille after his time in Turkey with Galatasaray, and has scored 124 goals for the club in over a decade in Germany, winning the league eight times and multiple other trophies, including the Champions League.
Robben joined two years later for roughly the same price after his spell with Real Madrid and, despite being a one trick pony, has scored 143 goals for the Bundesliga side.
The two have become synonymous with the team but have both announced that they will leave at the end of the season, with their contracts coming to an end.
Going into Saturday's game, with Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayern still needed to win to guarantee winning the title again, with Borussia Dortmund playing Monchengladbach.
The script writers weren't taking a break for the end of the season and both legendary wingers got on the scoresheet:

Bit disappointed with Robben to be honest, where was the epic last cut in from the right and curling the ball home with his left?!
The two goals led to Bayern winning 4-1 and securing a seventh Bundesliga title in a row after they'd trailed rivals Dortmund for much of the season.
With the French winger being 36 and the Dutchman being 35 there is a chance they could call it a day for their careers but neither has said they want to retire.
It's been a hell of an era at the Allianz Arena with two legendary wingers operating on either side and what a way for it to finish!
