The midfielder was helped from the pitch during an International Champions Cup contest in Singapore, but the injury was not serious

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery will be sidelined for three-to-four days with an ankle injury after being helped from the field during a 2-0 friendly loss against Inter.

Bayern 1/8 to win Bundesliga

Ribery had impressed in the early exchanges of the International Champions Cup clash in Singapore on Thursday, stinging the palms of Samir Handanovic in the sixth minute.

However, his game came to a premature end on the half-hour mark after a challenge from Milan Skriniar caught him on the foot.

As the players stopped for a water break, Ribery received attention and was deemed not fit enough to continue before being aided from the field by two members of the Bayern staff.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti clarified post-match that Ribery received stiches for a small cut on his ankle but avoided serious damage.

Bayern face Borussia Dortmund in the Super Cup on August 5 before the first game of the new Bundesliga campaign 13 days later against Bayer Leverkusen.
