Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery opened up on a devastating car crash which left him scarred for life. According to British tabloid, The Sun, the French midfielder was hit by a lorry when he was just two. He was rushed to hospital and received over 100 stitches.
Speaking to former Leeds midfielder Olivier Dacourt on Canal Sport yesterday, Ribery admitted the famous scars improved his endurance. "They gave me character and this strength because when you are a child and you have a scar like this, it's not easy. The way people see you, the comments -- my family suffered for this."
He revealed how people ridiculed him when he walked in public. "People would say, 'Look what he has on his face, look at his head. What is this scar? It's so ugly.' Wherever I went, people would look at me," Ribery added.
