Ancelotti not worried by Ribery injury

Franck Ribery's injury is not serious.

Franck Ribery’s injury suffered in Bayern Munich’s pre-season friendly defeat to Inter is only minor, according to coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Carlo Ancelotti insists the injury sustained by Franck Ribery in Bayern Munich’s loss to Inter in the International Champions Cup on Thursday is not serious.

Ribery had to be helped from the field during the first half of Inter’s 2-0 win in Singapore after being caught by a challenge from defender Milan Skriniar.

Bayern are set to get their season under way when they face Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup on August 5, with Ribery expected to be fit to play.

“Ribery has a small cut on his ankle,” Ancelotti told reporters. “He was given stitches. He will only be out for three to four days.

“Ribery is not a problem. The physical condition of the players has improved. We have time now. Other players are coming and we can prepare for the next game.”
