Bayern Munich Twitter account destroys Man United fan for taking the piss out of Ribery dab


Simon Lloyd

At the ripe old age of 33, Franck Ribery’s better days on a football field are behind him.

That said, he’s not quite done yet, as he reminded us on Wednesday night.

Starting for Bayern Munich at home to Hertha Berlin – the only other side in the Bundesliga to share Bayern’s 100% record this season – the Frenchman opened the scoring in a 3-0 victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. The victory means that the Italian is the first coach to win his first seven matches in charge of the German champions.

Clearly pleased with himself for getting on the scoresheet, Ribery followed in the footsteps of fellow thirty-something-year-old Dirk Kuyt – celebrating the goal with a dab.

As was the case with Kuyt the other week, not everyone was all that pleased to see Ribery choose to celebrate his goal with a dab.

Take Tony for example, who replied to the above tweet from Bayern’s official US Twitter page with this.

On closer inspection of Tony’s Twitter account, it’s clear that his football allegiances lie with Manchester United. Having taken exception to the use of the word ‘irrelevant’ to describe Ribery, whoever runs the Bayern page responded by reminding Tony precisely how far his team have fallen in the European game.
