Chelsea target Franck Ribery has been forced to train away from his Bayern Munich team mates after his wife contracted swine flu.

The France international is currently working his way back from a knee injury that has wrecked the start to his Bundesliga season.

And the 26-year-old must continue his rehabilitation alone after Bayern manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Ribery's wife, Wahiba, has been diagnosed with the virus.

But any hopes Ribery may have of leaving Germany in January could be dashed if he was to contract the illness.
