Checkerboarding in LES

I've been testing LES/DES models using the central differencing scheme for the convective term of the momentum equation, on some test-cases in which the flow encounters a bluff body (square cylinder; ribs in a channel). Despite adopting configurations and grids very similar to the ones employed in some works present in literature, the simulations I've been running suffer from the well-known problem of Checkerboarding, that presents itself in the velocity field (it persists even averaging in time) but not in the pressure field. It seems that OpenFoam with the central scheme is not able to provide a correct solution on grids that are used successfully in literature.
I'd like to know if any of you has experienced such difficulties in using the central difference scheme in OF.
Thank you very much,
