The 35-year-old Bayern Munich winger and former France worldwide posted the video of a visit to Nusr-Et, a steak house owned by celebrity Turkish restauranteur Salt Bae and rubbing his hands before tucking into a huge chop coated in gold.

On Thursday, the 35-year-old France and Bayern Munich star had posted a video of a visit to a steak house owned by celebrity Turkish restauranteur Salt Bae and rubbing his hands before tucking into a huge chop coated in gold.

Ribery responded on Saturday, posting a lengthy message on his Instagram story, which was copied to his Twitter page. "Let's start with the jealous, the haters, those clearly born from a condom with a hole in", Ribery wrote. My success is above all thanks to God, thanks to myself and thanks to my loved ones, who believed in me.

Golden steak, coated in 24-carat gold, is one of Salt Bae's signature dishes.

The Frenchman received plenty of criticism for eating the steak, which cost 1,200 euros, yet Ribery decided that he would come back at them with a wild tirade.

Blues pull out of potential transfer for Gonzalo Higuain
Given their latest blow in pursuit of Higuain, the Blues have to up the ante to sign a striker. Sarri and Chelsea should instead recall Tammy Abraham and give him a chance.

In his second Tweet, Ribery castigated "pseudo-journalists" who are always "negative".

The well-known French journalist Audry Pulvar then chose to write about Ribery on Twitter.

"When I give [to charity] (because I've been taught to always give when I receive a lot) why no big national media is talking about it?"

"No, you prefer to talk about the holidays I have with my family, you monitor my actions, what I eat, etc. Thanks to him and his wife who spend lavishly to finance our humanitarian activities".

Ribery, who turns 36 in April, is rumored to be coming to the end of his time in the German city, with Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac understood to be in the market for a replacement to the player who has spent more than a decade in the German's side's starting XI.
