Already embarrassed by disappointing results in the league (5th Bundesliga), the leaders of Bayern Munich would have gone well with the new incarnation Franck Ribery. Saturday night, the 35-year-old Frenchman insulted, kicked his chest and slapped Patrick Guillou, beIN Sports consultant, three times after his team's defeat in Dortmund (2-3). For his part, the consultant kept his hands in his pockets and did not respond to the shots by the attacker.
The latter would not have appreciated the comments of the former assistant coach of Bordeaux and Wolfsburg and he made it known in his own way, with strong fingers of honor when getting back in the bus. In his eyes, Guillou would be guilty of having pointed out on the air his loss of ball at the origin of the third goal of Borussia Dortmund.
A priori nothing bad, but the French, at the end of the contract, Bavaria is currently going through a complicated pass with depressing statistics (15 games, 1 assists and no goal) and declining influence on the ground.
A meeting between Guillou and Ribéry to come
Considered his spiritual father in the German club, Uli Hoeness, the president of the Bavarian club, took the case in hand since Sunday night and heated his phone to try to extinguish the controversy. He has also sensitized his player to a form of mea culpa, and, from a German source, a meeting with the beIN Sports consultant and the German leaders is expected to be held these days. It is rumored in Germany that Ribery could participate and apologize to the former player of Saint-Etienne aged 48.
Guillou also reserves the right to file a complaint, although this is clearly not the trend today. Especially if the former international had to apologize publicly. Then charge the Bavarian leaders to choose to punish him financially or not.
