“I won’t talk to Boanteng again, he knows that I’m Muslim, I’m pissed off,” Franck Ribery reacted to his team- mates’ refusal to keep the alcohol away from him as Bayern Munich players were understandably in a party mood after their final home game of the season.
Ribery, a Muslim, was chased around the pitch before Ghanaian- born Jerome Boateng got to him and dunked a huge glass of beer over his head.
Manuel Neuer also carried out a similar act as he cheekily threw beer on one of the girls on the pitch. The unsuspecting girl was drenched while Neuer wheeled away in celebration.
Having wrapped up the Bundesliga title with 22 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund, victory in the Champions League final and the German Cup could see Bayern winning a famous treble in their current campaign. Before then, Ribery’s team- mates have to be aware of the fact that Islam is against the use of alcohol and have shown respect for the French player’s choice.
