Franck Ribéry was involved in a car accident when he was just two years old, which left him requiring 100 stitches for a head wound.
“I’m proud of my scar, It gave me strength and forged my character.”
“You have to be mentally strong to withstand the ridicule of other children and the stares of adults.”
Ribery led his team to another victory yesterday against Barcelona (2-0).
