Bayern star picks injury during training game

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has been ruled out indefinitely after picking up a thigh injury in an internal training game.

The Bavarian club say Ribery tore muscle fiber in his right thigh during Wednesday evening’s training session at the team’s winter camp in Doha, Qatar.

The team did not say how long the 35-year-old Frenchman will be out. Bayern are already without Arjen Robben (thigh injury) and Corentin Tolisso (cruciate ligament).

Ribery was fined by the club last weekend for a tirade of obscene insults on social media in reaction to criticism he received over a video of him being served a gold-leaf steak while on vacation in Dubai.

The veteran winger has made 22 appearances so far this season, contributing five goals and one assist.
