The French winger is used to being the one inflicting his box of tricks on unwitting defenders, but on this occasion he was on the receiving end

Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery has forged a career out of being a tricky winger capable of bamboozling and embarrassing opposition defenders.

Those forced into direct competition with the France international often have no answer to his clever footwork, brute strength and direct running.

In training, though, Ribery can be exposed to similar punishment from his own team-mates.

Ribery turned down 'every big club'

With the mood lighter and concentration not as intense, even a player of Ribery’s undoubted quality can be upstaged.

He found that out to his cost during a recent session involving Brazilian colleague Rafinha, with the experienced full-back pulling off the most nonchalant of nutmegs.

To his credit, Ribery takes the nutmeg well and sees the funny side.

He is less impressed to discover that the incident has been caught on camera, with Rafinha’s trickery now aired for all to see.
