Franck Ribéry: “My objective?  Become a coach »

Since he announced the end of his career last October, Franck Ribéry had refused any request for an interview. This Wednesday, the former Bayern Munich left winger (2007-2019) broke his silence by giving a long interview to the German weekly Sport-Bild. From the start, he revealed his intention to become a coach, he who currently occupies the position of assistant coach at Salernitana alongside former Bordeaux player Paulo Sousa. “Become number one myself? It’s my aim, explained Ribery. I am currently preparing to graduate. Occupying the position of coach will allow me to rediscover this adrenaline and this pressure which accompanies daily training and matches. I can not live without it. I need it to be happy. »
