Serie A: Ribery joins newly-promoted Salernitana aged 38


Former France attacker Franck Ribery has joined Salernitana on a one-year deal, the promoted Serie A club said on Monday.

Ribery, 38, had been a free agent since leaving Fiorentina at the end of last season and was welcomed at their Estadi Archi home in southern Italy by around a hundred supporters.

“There is an incredible passion and that’s why I came to Salerno,” Ribery said during a press conference.
