Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has apologised to a TV pundit after an altercation between the pair following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern didn’t touch upon a potential punishment for Ribery, whereas the German FA has instructed ESPN FC it won’t open proceedings in opposition to him as a result of the incident was “a personal altercation between the participant and a journalist he is aware of.”
Earlier this week, the Bundesliga champions confirmed that Ribery, 35, had been concerned in an incident with beIN SPORTS pundit Patrick Guillou after the match.
Eyewitnesses stated Ribery had railed at Guillou earlier than slapping him within the face and pushing him, Bild reported.
On Wednesday, Guillou attended a gathering with former France worldwide Ribery, Bayern president Uli Hoenness and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic on the membership’s workplaces.
Bild reported that Ribery had stated sorry to Guillou and expressed his remorse over the incident.
