Ribery set for further scans

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery will undergo a fresh set of injury tests at the end of the month as he continues his recovery from a serious ankle problem.

The 32-year-old has been on the treatment table since injuring his right ankle on 11 March in a Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

The German club had initially hoped that surgery would not be required, opting to employ 'non-surgical therapy' in a bid to remedy the troublesome injury.

And, while Ribery avoided the need to go under the knife, his ankle was 'immobilised' in June as they club looked to accelerate the healing process.

With this in mind, Ribery will undergo an assessment in just over three weeks' time.

The club's sporting director, Matthias Sammer said: "A new test is scheduled for the end of August to see if we can step up his workload."
