Bayern’s Robben still doubtful, Ribery fit
BERLIN, Sept 17 — Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben is doubtful for their Champions League Group F encounter against Valencia on Wednesday but teammate Franck Ribery is set to play.
Dutchman Robben returned from international duty with a groin injury last week and missed Bayern’s 3-1 league win over Mainz 05 on Saturday. Frenchman Ribery was also ruled out of that game with a muscle injury.
“I still have to wait. We will see how it goes each day,” Robben said after returning to team training today. “The adductor muscles did not feel right; it had to do with my back.”
Fellow winger Ribery sounded more confident about a return to the starting lineup.
“I think I will be able to play on Wednesday,” he said on the club website. — Reuters
