German clinic denies Schumacher rehab reports

A German rehabilitation clinic has denied that one of its current patients is the great Michael Schumacher.

The former Ferrari and Mercedes driver's manager Sabine Kehm said in April that, after Schumacher began showing signs of waking from his long coma, the "plan" was to relocate him from the hospital in Grenoble, France.

"Our plan and our desire would be that from the moment in which Michael can go into a rehab clinic, this media coverage will stop," Kehm told ARD television.

Germany's Radio 7 claimed on Wednesday that Schumacher, who turned 45 after his near-fatal skiing fall, is now recovering at the Kliniken-Schmieder neurological rehab hospital in Allensbach, Germany.

But the German news agency DPA said a spokesman for the clinic specifically denied the Radio 7 report.

DPA added that Schumacher is still at the hospital in Grenoble, where he has been since he struck his head on rocks at the Meribel ski resort in late December last year.
