Ribery sets new Bayern record with 366th appearance

The winger's long run with the club has seen him surpass Hasan Salihamidzic in the Bavarians' record books

Franck Ribery has become the non-German with the most appearances for Bayern Munich after featuring in his 366th game for the club on Wednesday. 

The winger made his competitive debut for the German giants all the way back in July 2007 and has won seven Bundesliga titles and the UEFA Champions League since joining. 

Wednesday's game saw Ribery surpass Hasan Salihamidzic, who spent nine seasons with the Bavarians, for the record. 

Bayern's 1-0 win over Koln leaves the club nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table, but also saw the side finish 2017 without having tasted Bundesliga defeat at the Allianz Arena. 

Over 16 Bundesliga matches at the Allianz Arena the side took 13 wins with just three draws, the first time the club had completed a calendar year unbeaten at home since 2013. 

The club was lead on Wednesday by another goal from Robert Lewandowski, who netted for the 166th time in the Bundesliga, a mark leaves him tied for 10th on the league's all-time scoring list. 

Bayern will be back in action on Saturday with a league match against Stuttgart and will take on Borussia Dortmund in a DFB Pokal third-round clash next Wednesday before the winter break.
