BERLIN - France star Franck Ribery's wife is reported to be set to stand by her man, despite the Bayern Munich midfielder being linked to an under-age call-girl scandal, German daily Bild claimed yesterday.

Ribery, 27, has been at the centre of a media storm since revelations about the human trafficking case, in which he and his France team mate Sidney Govou were called as witnesses, broke last weekend.

According to Bild's sources, Ribery's wife Wahiba, for whom he converted to Islam, were due to attend last night's Champions League semifinal, first-leg clash between Bayern Munich and Lyon at Munich's Allianz Arena in a show of solidarity.

The couple have two daughters and were married in 2002. AFP claims Ribery admitted having relations with the prostitute but said he did not know she was under-age.
