Franck Ribery’s last World Cup dream ended as he has finally been ruled out to participate in that major tournament after suffering another set back just days before the opening day.
This disappointing news was revealed by Les Blues’ head coach, Didier Deschamps, who stated that Ribery had to pull out of their latest training after feeling some pain and further examination showed that the Bayern Munich man won’t be able to play or even train for the next few weeks.
Knowing that situation, Deschamps decided to left Ribery out from the final 23 squad and joining the winger is Lyon’s star, Clement Grenier, who picked up an injury on Les Blues latest match against Norway.
Having to left those two players days before the World Cup, Deschamps opted to replace them with Morgan Schneiderlin along with Remy Cabella, who that tactician believes have similar characteristics with Ribery and Grenier.
It will be interesting to see how competitive will France be with those absentees, especially in handling Ribery’s absence, which can be pretty huge for them.
