Franck Ribery None-Too-Happy About Bayern’s Title Celebrations

You see, Frenchman Franck Ribery is a devout Muslim, and devout Muslims are not allowed to even touch beer.  This is bound to present itself as a problem when you’re playing professional football in a country well known for their beer drinking: Germany.

Bayern Munich celebrated their title win over the weekend, and the players ran around the field with steins of beer dousing each other and drinking up the sweet, sweet suds, as is tradition.  So when it came time for Ribery to get his due and proper, he ran for as long as he possibly could to avoid Jerome Boateng and his mug of beer.  He was not successful and apparently not very happy with Boateng, saying: “I won’t talk to Boateng again, he knows that I’m Muslim. I’m p***** off.”

Any religion where you can’t even touch beer is no religion for me, but I guess to each their own.  Video of the incident below:
