Franck Ribery Slices Apart Inter Milan’s Defence With An Unbelievable Assist For Fiorentina

Franck Ribery rolled back the years as he tore through the Inter Milan defence with a single pass to set up Fiorentina's third goal of the match.

Fiorentina shocked Inter in the opening 10 minutes as Christian Kouame fired them into the lead at the San Siro on Saturday.

Lautaro Martinez, who was heavily linked with Barcelona in the summer, managed to pull back an equaliser for Antonio Conte's men before half-time.

Inter took the lead early in the second half thanks to a Federico Ceccherini own goal before Ribery stepped up to pull Fiorentina back in the game.

The 37-year-old French winger, who signed for the Italian club in 2019, set up Gaetano Castrovilli with his first assist of the game.

And then the Bayern Munich legend followed up his initial assist with a moment of pure magic as he helped Fiorentina take the lead with a sensational pass.

Ribery waited for the perfect moment to play his pass through the Inter defence into the path of the onrushing Federico Chiesa.

The 22-year-old Italian winger produced a dink finish that hit Samir Handanovic's hand en route to the ball heading into the back of the net.

Fiorentina's hopes of picking up a sensational win over Inter were dashed late on as Romelu Lukaku and Danilo D'Ambrosio both scored.

Inter's 4-3 win over Fiorentina was their first match of the new Serie A season as Conte's men hope to mount a title challenge against Juventus.
