Ribery: 'Fiorentina forever!'

Franck Ribery has thanked Sebastien Frey for his message of support and confirmed his commitment to Fiorentina. ‘Viola forever!’

Frey leapt to Ribery’s defence in an Instagram post after the winger was criticised by some Fiorentina ultras, unhappy with his choice of words after his home was burgled.

Now, the 37-year-old has shown his fellow Frenchman his appreciation for the message, while expressing gratitude for the club’s ‘real fans’.

“My brother, thank you very much,” he replied.

“You know me, you know where I’m from and you know I’m not the type to back out of anything.

“I do as I say! It’s not possible to please everyone. In the meantime, I put my boots on, I have the real fans on my side and also the city, which is counting on me.

“The rest matters little to me. I signed for the real Viola. Viola forever!”
