The report claims that the collision happened at around 3am on Sunday morning.

Ribery captained and played 71 minutes of Salernitana’s 1-1 draw with Bologna the day before. 

Salernitana find themselves 10 points adrift of safety at the foot of the Italian top flight after picking up just three league wins this season. 

The former France international sustained horrific facial injuries in a crash with a lorry which required over 100 stitches and left him with permanent scars when he was younger.

Those scars which made Ribery a figure of fun – among the parents of children he was at school with.

‘They gave me character and this strength,’ Ribery said in an interview with Canal+ in France three years ago. ‘Because, when you are a child and you have a scar like this, it’s not easy.

‘Wherever I went, people would look at me. And not because I was a good person or because my name is Franck or was a good footballer, but because of the scar.

‘The people who talk about you are the parents (of other children), and this is very cruel.
