Franck Ribery back in training after injury
Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery returned to training on Wednesday following a six-week injury break due to a knee injury.
The 34-year-old Frenchman, at Bayern since 2007, is desperate to return to action as he battles for a contract extension at the end of the season.
Ribery tore the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee in the German champions' 2-2 draw at Hertha Berlin on Oct. 1.
"Playing on Saturday against Augsburg is a bit early for him," the club said in a statement.
Spaniard Juan Bernat, however, who has yet to play this season after being injured during the pre-season, sounded confident of a possible return on Saturday.
"Maybe I can be part of the team at the next game," Bernat said. "I am feeling good."
