Franck Ribery chose Fiorentina because “football is my life and I am still hungry to play. This club has a lot of ambition and we want a top five or top three finish.”
The 36-year-old signed the two-season contract, turning down more lucrative deals in Russia or UAE to join the Viola.
“I want to thank my agents and the club directors. We talked a lot and reached an agreement that made me very happy,” the World Cup winner said in a Press conference.
