Karembeu: Ribery Fiorentina success no surprise to me

Former Sampdoria star Christian Karembeu is happy seeing Franck Ribery at Fiorentina.

Ribery has starred since his summer arrival from Bayern Munich.

Karembeu told TMW: "What he's doing at Fiorentina doesn't surprise me.

"We wanted him at Olympiacos (Karembeu is their sports director) but chose Fiorentina.

"Franck is a champion and will still make the difference in Italy."

He added: "In the meantime, Serie A has become attractive again, almost like when I was playing."
