Bayern Munich's France international Franck Ribery has been quizzed by French police investigating an affair of prostitution involving a minor.
"He was questioned as a witness - for us the matter stops there," Ribery's lawyer, Sophie Bottai, told AFP on Sunday.
Earlier a judicial source had confirmed that French investigators had questioned two French national team footballers as part of the inquiry.

One of the French players has admitted having a relationship with a prostitute but denied knowing that she was a minor, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The two players, who were not identified, were questioned by investigators working for Paris examining magistrate Yves Dando, the source said confirming a report by the M6 television station.

The investigation concerns a Paris night club, frequented by certain French internationals, which is suspected of employing prostitutes, the source said.

L'Equipe newspaper reported Sunday that a third French international player could be questioned in coming weeks as part of the same investigation.
