When Franck Ribery was caught having sex with a prostitute he confessed Thierry Henry had a hand in it.
Bayern Munich has kept quiet while the swirling sex scandal involving French national players and underage sex workers has Ribery caught right in its center.
According to investigators the midfielder has admitted to having sex with a prostitute at the Cafe Zaman, a Paris night club but denied knowing she was underage. Ribery is married with two children.
The club has focused instead on the midfielder’s injury updates. Assistant coach Andreief Jonker was confident that he will be ready to face Lyon.
“He will be part of the team. His situation is good,” he confirmed. “He took part in all training. What he had to do, he did very well.There is no doubt he is fit to play.”
Under French law any customer charged with having sex with an underage prostitute could face up to three years of imprisonment and a €45,000 fine.
Other players who have been questioned are Lyon winger Sidney Govou, Marseille striker Hatem Ben Arfa, and Real’s Karim Benzema.
