Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery says he will never talk to team-mate Jerome Boateng again after the Germany international soaked him with beer during the club’s title celebrations.
The devout Muslim took Boateng’s actions to heart, believing he should have known the soaking would not sit well with Ribery’s religious beliefs.
You can knock Boateng’s tact and cultural awareness, but not his persistence. The video above shows just how determined he was to drench Ribery.
After succumbing, Ribery said: “I won’t talk to Boateng again, he knows that I’m Muslim. I’m p***** off.”
In totally unrelated news to one of Bayern’s top players openly admitting he feels annoyed at the lack of respect for his faith, the German giants have announced that they will be building a mosque at the Allianz Arena for their Muslim players to pray before and after matches.
