Former Bayern and French winger Ribery has retired from football
Former France and Bayern winger Franck Ribery has announced his retirement from football.
Ribery, 39, has ended his contract with Serie A club Solanitana after struggling with knee problems.
He played 425 games for Bayern from 2007 to 2019, scoring 124 goals and creating 182 goals, and won nine Bundesliga titles and the Champions League in 2013.
Ribery moved to Fiorentina last summer before moving to Solannitana, where he helped them avoid relegation.
Rumors of his retirement from football have been circulating for several weeks.
France finished second behind Italy in the 2006 World Cup, and in June 2007, Ribery moved from Marseille to Bayern for £17 million.
Ribery, who won the French Player of the Year award three times, scored 16 goals and assisted 25 goals in 81 games for the national team.
Together with Dutch winger Arjen Robben, he achieved success at Bayern during the 12 years he won the German championship 7 times in a row.
