Ancelotti: Ribery not playing well

Franck Ribery could watch the DFB Cup semi-final against BVB Dortmund from the sidelines after FC Bayern München  manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted he was not happy with the winger's form.

Ribery was hauled off at half-time during Bayern's 2-2 draw with Mainz at the weekend, and he may not even make the bench for Wednesday's cup-tie.

"Ribery is fit and can play on Wednesday," Ancelotti said in a press conference on Tuesday. "He was out of the team the other day because he had not been playing well."

The Italian coach added that Douglas Costa had recovered from a knee problem, and was an option for the clash with arch-rivals Dortmund.
