Ribery back for Bayern Munich, Robben out

BY foxsports • February 4, 2011

Bayern Munich will welcome Franck Ribery back from injury at FC Cologne on Saturday, while Arjen Robben has been ruled out.

Ribery will make his comeback a week after reports claimed he would miss at least another three weeks due to a knee injury sustained at Wolfsburg on Jan. 15. It is unclear whether he will start against 16th-place Cologne.

Bayern coach Louis van Gaal says "I still have to decide that."

Robben, however, did not travel with the rest of the squad after he was unable to partake in Friday's training due to a cold.

Van Gaal says "I have alternatives for these positions in Thomas Mueller and Hamit Altintop."
