Injured Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery is still at least two months away from a return to full fitness, according to club director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

France international Ribery tore ligaments just above his left ankle during his country´s 2-0 defeat to Italy in Euro 2008 and underwent surgery soon after.

The 25-year-old will now have a second operation to remove metal plates from the ankle and faces eight weeks of intensive rehabilitation to get fit before he can make a return to the Bayern fold.
