The Bayern Munich footballer is set to leave the German Bundesliga club at the end of the season, and he wants to add one more trophy.

Franck Ribery will say goodbye to German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The player still has to be part of two more matches: the final game of the 2018-2019 season and the DFB-Pokal Final.

He might get two more trophies before he leaves the Bavarians, but where does he keep them?

“I have it downstairs in the cellar. I have a nice room, a nice spot where I have all the trophies I’ve won. It’s nice!” he told the Bundesliga official website.

“I’m down there often because I have a billiard table and a pinball machine. Sometimes, when we have a get-together, for a children’s birthday or something, we go downstairs. When my kids come and ask me ‘Dad, what have you won?’, they can go downstairs and see the trophies.”

“It makes me proud of what I’ve achieved and won throughout my career,” he explained.

“Personally, respect is the most important aspect of my career.”

“Doesn’t matter what you have done or won, the person, he or herself, is the most important thing,” he said.

“A big thank you for the wishes from Mario, Matthäus and Matthias. They are three great personalities.”

He continued: “Matthäus and Mattias were two great players. What they said was lovely. I also knew Mario here at Bayern. He used to sit next to me in the changing rooms. We had some good moments together as well.”
