FLORENCE – Crowd bath at the Artemio Franchi Stadium in Florence for the official presentation of Franck Ribery .

Shortly thereafter he made his first dribbles on the Franchi turf to the choir of "Franck Franck Ribery, Franck Franck Ribery!". Shortly thereafter, there were also choirs for Joe Barone, Rocco Commisso's right-hand man who was present at the event: "Bring us to portaculars in Europe, Joe Barone bring us to Europe!"
Shortly before the presentation at the stadium, to gather the embrace of the fans, Ribery had held his first press conference as Fiorentina footballer. Your statements are reported by the Corriere dello Sport.
"Football is my life and that's why I preferred to stay in Europe. I respect Totti as much as a person and as a footballer. I hope to be able to reach 40 years and be decisive. In January I was injured in a retreat, then the coach made other choices, giving more space to young people. But when I was called into question I always answered this.
Serie A is a great championship, with many great teams. I'm here to help Fiorentina, I'm not here to compete with Ronaldo. We talked a lot, found the agreement, I'm very happy to be here. I saw so much motivation in the leadership. I felt so much trust. My wife was also very important in my choice, because the family is very important to me.
Yesterday the welcome was special, the passion of the people reminds me of the one I lived in Marseille. Here people live for football. Tonight the stadium will also be full and this pushes me to do my best. Now they have to help me find a big house because I have 5 children. "
