French winger Franck Ribery has announced that he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season and has been taking some time out and getting the golden treatment at chef Salt Bae's restaurant in Turkey.

Ribery and Bayern are next in action on 18 January when they face Hoffenheim. We shall see if they have the appetite to claw back the deficit on league leaders Borussia Dortmund once the winter break in Germany comes to an end.
