Ribéry back up and running

Franck Ribéry is making good progress on the road to an eagerly-awaited comeback. The 32-year-old completed another session of light running at the Säbener Strasse training ground on Thursday. Ribéry, who has not played for FC Bayern since March due to a persistent ankle injury, started running again at the end of last week. Before then, the French winger had gradually increased his training load on the treadmill in the performance center. Ribéry will continue his step-by-step recovery from the long lay-off over the coming weeks.
