Fabrizio Castori, the coach of Salernitana, the new team of Franck Ribéry, did not expect to welcome the French international.
The 38-year-old Bayern Munich legend clearly had no intention of hanging up his boots. While he wanted to extend his lease at the Viola this summer, the former attacking midfielder of Olympique de Marseille was finally forced to look for a new base. Not lacking in suitors, Franck Ribéry has decided to stay in the Italian championship. He joined the Salernitana club for a period of one year, plus another optional if maintained.
« The arrival of Ribery was a very pleasant surprise. I didn’t think we could make a deal like this, said the coach of the promoted from A league. We already knew he was a great player. It was very easy to integrate him, he is a simple, intelligent guy, who amazed us with his humility (…) He joined the other players with enthusiasm and he will be a bonus for Salerno. He is not yet in great shape, which we already knew. »
