31-Year-Old Midfielder Bayern Munich Bundesliga
Ribery, who scored his first goal of the Bundesliga season in Saturday's 2-0 win over Stuttgart, will not play in Bayern Munich's Champions League match against Manchester City on Wednesday due to a knee injury, ESPN FC reports. Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola said "Franck is not here, he is home. He went to the doctor on Monday and today (Tuesday) they told me he cannot play."
Ribery has struggled with injuries this summer, as he missed the World Cup with a back injury. It is unclear if he suffered a setback with his knee during Saturday's match or if he's just not fit enough to play, but either way he could miss Saturday's Bundesliga match against Hamburg SV as well.
