Franck Ribery unties the referee’s laces before curling in a superb free-kick in the Bundesliga champions’ 5-0 win over Chemnitzer FC in their DFB-Pokal first round fixture.
It did not go unnoticed by Steinhaus, who reacted by giving Ribery two playful punches on the arm. “She’s strong, she’s got a lot of power!” said the Bayern no.7 afterwards. “It was funny. She played along and was in good spirits. You can have fun with referees but it’s also important that there’s mutual respect.”
