Ribery Salary & Net WorthHow much did Franck Ribery earn?
Current JobWhat does Ribery currently do?
His domestic career has been going strong and is showing no signs of slowing down. The Serie A is the perfect league for him to end his career, and he's with Fiorentina now. (Image: imgur.com)
He was involved in a terrible car accident when he was two years old. It left him with a massive scar on his face and one of the coolest nicknames on the planet. At least in the world of football. Who wouldn't want to be named after an Al Pacino character from Hollywood? He didn't have it easy, though. He was bullied for a long time, but that has made him stronger, and he has definitely embraced his scar as a part of him. Although that's cool, what's with the pants? We're not getting the whole idea behind it. (Image: imgur.com)
Paying for sex?
By his admission, he has had sex with a prostitute. The issue in his case was that the girl was a minor at the time. Seventeen years old, to be exact. Judging from her looks, it's highly likely that she looked far older than her age. He was let off the hook by the French prosecutors. (Image: imgur.com)
Prostitution is an abhorrence
But we're not going to go easy on him. That's because prostitution is a transactional failure on the party that is paying. After all, they've essentially compensated a person that has quite possibly had an intimate physical satisfaction from the act. It's a defeat on an intellectual level. It benefits neither the society nor the people involved in any way, shape, or form. Shouldn't he have known better? (Image: imgur.com)
He was robbed
Scarface wears a dejected look on the field. It could be due to a missed chance, but the fact that he was robbed when he first moved to Italy had to have played a part. He was genuinely concerned for the safety of his family. It stressed him out so much that he even contemplated leaving the country. It was a very bad experience for him, but incidents like this happen all the time to people, especially those that have accumulated wealth that is disproportionate to the rest of the lot. It is an expression of anger, and something should be done to address this issue. (Image: imgur.com)
Looking for Prayer times?
He's a convert to Islam and has been a devout follower of the faith for a very long time. He has been open about his religion, and his convert name's Bilal. His wife is Muslim too and is of Algerian descent. It's unclear if he converted because of her. As a practicing person, he has claimed that he prays five times a day. That's something that is obligatory on every person who is a Muslim. He also prays every time before he steps on the pitch for a match. According to him, it helps calm himself down and focus better.

Ribery Car - What does he drive?
Not a lot of footballers drive this model of Mercedes. We think that's a GLE. Say what you want about this man, but he's got impeccable taste. (Image: imgur.com)
House - Where does he live?
Location: Firenze, Italy
Italy is his home now. We think he shouldn't be doing the 'duck face' pose for photographs. That's a bit dated. (Image: imgur.com)
