Bayern's Ribery suffers hamstring injury


Bayern Munich have confirmed that winger Franck Ribéry sustained a hamstring problem during a training match in Doha.

Franck Ribéry appears set for a spell on the sidelines after Bayern Munich confirmed the winger suffered a hamstring injury at their training camp in Doha. The 35-year-old, who has four Bundesliga goals in 14 appearances this season, sustained the problem during a practice match in the club's warm-weather camp in Qatar.

Bayern are yet to place a timescale on the Frenchman's recovery, announcing that he will be out of action "for the time being".

Ribéry was fined by the club last week after publishing a foul-mouthed tweet hitting back at those who accused him of flaunting his wealth in uploading a video of himself with a gold-coated steak in an exclusive Dubai restaurant.
