The club confirmed that Ribery was involved with an altercation with French TV journalist Patrick Guillou last Saturday.

According to The Independent, an eyewitness claimed that the French winger shoved and slapped Guillou after the reporter put the blame on Ribery for two of the goals Bayern conceded against BVB.

The 35-year-old has now publicly spoken about, and apologised, for the incident.

"I've had an appointment with Patrick Guillou and it was good that he came to Munich," Ribery said in a video posted on Bayern's official website.

"We talked together for a long time and about what happened after the match in Dortmund.

"Of course, what I did was wrong. After the match, I was very emotional.

"I said 'sorry' to Patrick and his family yesterday. And I hope that we can leave this behind – that's why this meeting was important for him and for me."
