Ribéry recovery on track
Franck Ribéry is making good progress in his recovery from a stubborn ankle injury and came out of plaster last Thursday, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed at Saturday's Allianz FC Bayern Team Presentation at the Allianz Arena. "There's light at the end of the tunnel. A medical has shown that the inflammation has settled down," Rummenigge reported, "he'll enter sports rehabilitation training next week and then hopefully be back out on the pitch in the not too distant future."
