Ballack has been out of action since April with a persistent ankle problem but Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff had predicted the Chelsea midfielder would be back in training "within 10 days".

However, Bayern Munich and Germany team doctor Muller-Wohlfahrt said: "In close agreement with the English doctors, I think he will be training again in the foreseeable future."

When asked to clarify "the foreseeable future", Muller-Wohlfahrt added: "I think it will be a few weeks."
