Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery will reportedly stand trial in June for having underage sex with a prostitute in Paris.

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery will reportedly go on trial in Paris in June for having sex with an underage girl.

The France international admitted to having sex with 17-year-old prostitute Zahia Dehar after he and national teammate Karim Benzema were charged with solicitation in August last year.

It is understood that Ribery, who has maintained that he was unaware that Dehar was a teenager, will stand trial in France in June, according to the Daily Star.

Prostitution is legal in France but paying for sex with anyone under the age of 18 is against the law.
