If there was one positive to come out of FC Bayern München’s first Bundesliga defeat of the season, it was the long-awaited return of Franck Ribery.
Welcomed back with open arms
The former France international netted a sensational consolation within six minutes of entering the fray as a second-half substitute at Borussia Mönchengladbach’s BORUSSIA-PARK this weekend, following a 269-day spell on the sidelines with a chronic ankle problem.
"It feels good to get a run-out when you’ve been out of action for so long," the 32-year-old winger explained after Saturday afternoon’s unforeseen 3-1 reverse. "It was nice to be back out on the pitch again. I’m back, which is good."
