Illustration for article titled Crazed Fan Talks His Way Into Bayern Munich Locker Room, Demands To Know Why Franck Ribery Doesnt Have His Dog

I mean, it's not like the guy didn't specifically leave his dog for Franck Ribery to look after. Getting mad at him without that would be unreasonable.


Last month, a French fan left his dog tied up at Bayern's training grounds. The dog, named Oito, came with a note:

"Dear Franck, I'm very sorry. I don't know who I can turn to anymore," the letter reportedly began.

"For a few weeks I've been looking for a solution for Oito, who's been classed as a fighting dog. But you won't find a sweeter animal. I'm a bit ashamed about this but I'd be very happy if you could do something for Oito," it reportedly continued.

The club did not give the dog to Ribery. It took it to an animal shelter, because that's the sane thing to do. But earlier today, that very same fan showed up at Bayern's training center again, and somehow talked his way past security and into the locker room. He angrily confronted Ribery, demanding to know why he didn't keep the dog.

The dog might be better off at the shelter. Ribery is still facing charges for sexing a 16-year-old prostitute.
