Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery loses appeal against three match ban

UEFA upheld Wednesday a three match ban imposed on Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery after a late tackle in the semi-final first leg battle with Lyon. Bayern may lodge another appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) next week.

AFP - Bayern Munich's French international playmaker Franck Ribery lost his appeal to UEFA against a three match European ban, club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said after Wednesday's hearing at European football's governing body.

Rummenigge claimed the decision was too harsh and said Bayern would lodge another appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), possibly next week.

Ribery is set to miss the Champions League final against Inter Milan on May 22 after the three-match ban imposed by UEFA's disciplinary committee on the French player after he was sent off in the semi-final first leg clash with Lyon.

The Bayern chairman told journalists after the appeal hearing: "It in principle upheld the decision in the first instance, that is a three game ban." Ribery did not comment.
