Ribery still out for Fiorentina?

Franck Ribery is considered a doubt for Fiorentina’s next game against Verona on Sunday.

That is because, as per Radio Bruno Toscana, the former Bayern Munich winger failed to train today due to fever.

Therefore, the 36-year-old could sit out the fourth consecutive matchday.

Ribery, a summer arrival from Bayern, has scored two goals and assisted as many in nine Serie A appearances this season.
