The attacker was not happy with the treatment he received upon his return to his old stomping ground, after being whistled and booed for the 78 minutes he was on the fieldBayern Munich winger Franck Ribery took a swipe at Marseille supporters after Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second-leg win at the Allianz Arena.
The Frenchman stated that he had enjoyed playing in front of 'real fans' in reference to the hostile reception he received at the Stade Velodrome last week.
The France international was whistled and booed every time he touched the ball at the home of his former club and it clearly affected his performance as he was hauled off on 78 minutes.
The winger has now admitted that he was indeed taken aback by the vitriol which came his way in Marseille and Ribery made his bitterness clear when speaking to reporters after Bayern’s 2-0 victory over the Ligue 1 outfit in Munich.
"Yes, I played a full game in front of my public,” he is quoted as saying by France Football.
“This here is a stadium. This is a crowd. They are real fans. With these fans, I'm enjoying myself. What happened in Marseille with the crowd, it was a bit difficult.”
Bayern advanced to the semi-finals following the 4-0 aggregate win and will face either Real Madrid or APOEL.
