"Saying goodbye to Fiorentina was not easy," admitted the French international (81 caps, 16 goals).
I am a whole person, I really gave everything for this club because it is my mentality.
“Despite an honorable season (2 goals, 7 assists in 30 games in all competitions), the attacking midfielder failed to convince his management to repeat the experience.
"I would like to stay in Italy"
If rumors have circulated about Ribery's return to Olympique de Marseille, Marseille President Pablo Longoria immediately denied them. Just like the player. “I really thought about continuing in Florence, I never criticized the club and I have good memories. Now, I would like to stay in Italy, I would like to stay in Serie A. ”A time mentioned on the side of Monza in the event of the rise of Mario Balotelli's club in the first division (which was not the case), the French people are still looking for opportunities.
The native of Boulogne-sur-Mer then made words of appeasement for his last words in Florence. “These two seasons with Fiorentina have been a great time for the team and for the fans. Too bad, I wanted to continue another year but life and football are like that. I have always been available, even in the toughest times. "
