French winger Franck Ribéry’s might be getting to the twilight of his career but that hasn’t stopped him from setting new records.
In his debut season at Fiorentina, the former Bayern Munich star has had a mixed outing coupled with a nasty ankle injury with his start against Lazio on Saturday being his second in the last seven months.
On the day that his former Bayern Munich team-mate Arjen Robben announced his retirement u-turn, Ribéry wasn’t to be outshone by his old friend.
He beat three Aquile players with a sublime display of dribbling before driving the ball home – to show that age is just a number, a little like another ex-Fiorentina star.
By featuring in the game, Opta reports that only Real Betis’ Joaquin is older than the 37-year-old among the top-5 European Leagues 2019/20 midfielders with 3+ goals scored.
