Steeven Ribery, who is related to Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery, shows signs of brilliance that could see him in the senior team in a couple of years

Franck Ribery’s younger brother Steeven Ribery scored an absolute screamer for Bayern Munich’s reserve team last Tuesday. The youngster, who will turn 20 in a few months, plays as a winger just like his elder brother and even wears the number 7. Before starting his training with Bayern Munich, the 19-year old trained under French team Stade Portelois.

In this game, the youngster is seen playing on the right flank, from where he has a defender following his run. He makes his way close to the goal line outside the penalty box and lets fly the brilliant strike which sails over the goalkeeper and curls into the far post. 

If the player is able to continue scoring the way he has, it won’t be long before he is promoted to play for the Bayern Munich first team. We just might get to see the Ribery brothers leading the attack for Bayern Munich, with Franck Ribery on the left and Steeven on the right. 

The player has a tough task ahead of though as he will have to surpass the likes of Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze to break into the team. He is contracted to the Bayern Munich II side till June 2016, according to Transfermarkt. With goals like this, Bayern will do everything possible to keep hold of the teenager before other big clubs come chasing his signature. 

FC Bayern Munich II also called Kleine Bayern which means little Bayern is currently part of Germany’s fourth tier league called the Regionalliga Bayern. The team currently plays at the Grunwalder Stadion and is managed by German coach Hieko Vogel. The team won the Regionalliga in 2014 and were the runners-up in 2013 and 2015.
