Ribery fined over Salt Bae steak rant


German soccer club Bayern Munich fined its midfielder Franck Ribery after the Frenchman insulted his critics in expletive-laden comments on social media, following a trip to a high-end Dubai restaurant during the season’s winter break.

Ribery posted a video on January 3 whilst dining at one of the restaurants owned by the Turkish celebrity chef Salt Bae, real name Nusret Gokce. In the video, he is seen preparing to eat a huge gold-leafed steak, which reportedly cost $340, before performing Salt Bae’s trademark salt sprinkling. After receiving criticism online, the Frenchman hit out at what he called “jealous” people in a series of angry tweets.
