Dirty Tackle - World Soccer

Bayern Munich held their team photoshoot on Monday and troubled star and seasoned prankster Franck Ribery took the opportunity to unleash the classic bunny ears on unwitting teammate David Alaba. It seems those pesky charges of having sex with an underage prostitute don't have him too down.

Just last week, Ribery said this about the situation (via Soccernet):

"There are moments in life that are stressful and depressing. That moment is now," he said. "I must survive this low point. This is not easy for me. I am very much in the public eye and I must live with that.

"It is not always easy for me to manage that pressure. I hope that the discussions about my personal problems and my injuries will soon come to an end.

"I am confident that I can regain the confidence of the people who are doubting me now. I want to give them happiness again. I want to show them great dribbling skills, a positive feeling and score goals. Just like before."

Clearly Franck is already forging ahead on that mission to bring happiness and positive feelings to his doubters. One set of bunny ears at a time.
