Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery was reportedly involved in a physical confrontation with a French journalist after the club’s 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
The club have confirmed there was an ‘altercation’ between Ribery and TV reporter Patrick Guillou. The 35-year-old pushed and slapped his compatriot, and the club have insisted they are dealing with the matter internally.
Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told Bild: ‘Franck Ribery has informed us that he had an altercation with his compatriot Patrick Guillou, whom he has known well for many years.
‘We agreed with Patrick Guillou that we would speak at a personal meeting, we will talk about how we can solve the matter, and Mr Guillou has already signaled that it is in his interest.’
