'Islam convert' Bayern player 'furious' after getting beer-soaked despite warning after Bundesliga win

New York, May 14 : A Bayern Munich player, who is a convert to Islam, is reportedly furious for being doused with beer after the German giants won the Bundesliga trophy by beating Augsburg 2-0.

Although mid-fielder Franck Ribery, who shuns alcohol as it is forbidden by his religion, had warned his team-mates to keep any drinks far away from him before the game, however, his teammate and Bayern defender Jerome Boateng unloaded a massive pitcher of beer over his head, New York Daily News reports.

According to reports, a seething Ribery put Boateng on the top of his list of new enemies, vowing never to speak to him again, adding that the defender doused him with alcohol despite knowing that Ribery is Muslim.

However, the report said that Ribery's Islamic piety is a sharp contrast with the image of footballer who was once accused of sleeping with an underage prostitute and had to face jail time for his alleged trysts with then 16-year-old call girl in 2008, the report added.
