Expectations were understandably high upon Franck Ribery’s arrival as a Bayern Munich player, the record signing from Marseille tasked with replacing retiring club legend Mehmet Scholl as the Bavarian’s creative spark.
Ribery would live up to expectations and then some to become one of Bayern’s greatest players of the modern era, spending 12 years with the German giants and winning nine league titles and the Champions League amongst his honours.
Named as Footballer of the Year in Germany during his debut season, he finished as the Bundesliga’s leading assist provider in three consecutive campaigns between 2011 and 2013, the latter of which also saw him finish third in the Ballon d’Or rankings after helping Bayern to a historic treble.
Ribery’s pace, trickery and creativity saw him form an iconic duel threat with fellow winger Arjen Robben, the two inspiring a glittering period of success for Bayern.
He made 425 appearances in all competitions for the Germans and scored 124 goals, and we’ve decided to revisit some of his finest in a Bayern shirt.
Here are 10 of Franck Ribery’s best goals at Bayern Munich.
