Official: Ribery joins new club

Franck Ribery has completed a switch to Serie A outfit Fiorentina after 12 years of glittering success in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.

Ribery, 36, left Bayern at the end of last season and has entertained several offers over the past two months from Europe and the Middle East.

However, his next move takes him to Serie A, with Fiorentina confirming his arrival on their official Twitter account on Wednesday.

The veteran winger has reportedly agreed a two-year deal with the Italian top-flight side and will bring his own physio to the club - having struggled with injuries towards the latter stages of his iconic career in Munich.

Ribery scored 124 goals and registered 182 assists in 425 games for the Bavarian giants, winning 23 major titles in 12 seasons.
