Bayern protects pitch invader, Ribery gives him game-worn jersey

Franck Ribery may have found a new best friend.

When a Bayern Munich fan ran onto the field after watching his club clinch a spot in the Champions League final, he was immediately embraced by Ribery, and soon after, the entire team.

Bayern celebrated with the fan as they formed a circle around him, protecting him from the security guards while bouncing up and down with joy.

The guards eventually got a hold of the fan, and started to escort him off the field. But Ribery wasn’t done yet.

He whipped off his jersey, and jogged over to give it to him — and Ribery made sure the fan had his game-worn kit secured safely under his shirt, and not in the hands of the guards.

Perhaps Ribery will show up and bail him out of jail later?
