Franck Ribery’s attorney, Sophie Bottai, has stated that the French international has been quizzed by authorities in an investigation related to prostitution involving a minor. The Bayern Munich star has been questioned only as a witness at this point in the investigation of another French international.
The alleged Roman Polanksi wannabe has not been named yet. The unnamed footballer has admitted to a relationship with the prostitute but he did not know she was a minor. It is possible a third French national team player may be questioned in this investigation.
The investigation comes less than two months before the start of the 2010 World Cup. This is surely not a welcome distraction for the team and manager Raymond Domenech.
