Ex-Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby suffers injury in Marseille training

In the past three seasons, Abou Diaby has appeared in just 12 Premier League matches.
Abou Diaby has yet to appear for Marseille and has been out since Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Southampton in September 2014.

Abou Diaby's much-anticipated debut for Marseille has been put back again after the former Arsenal midfielder picked up a calf injury in training.

Diaby, 29, had looked close to a return to action after being included in Marseille's squad for their Coupe de France tie with lower league Trelissac last month and named on the bench for their 1-1 draw with Saint-Etienne on Feb. 21.

However, Marseille manager Michel confirmed on Wednesday that Diaby would not be fit for Thursday's cup quarter-final at amateur side Granville, with the ex-Auxerre central midfielder suffering yet another setback in his bid to play competitive football for the first time since September 2014.

"Friday morning I said he was on the list -- that he was ready to play," Michel said on Wednesday. "But on Friday afternoon after training he injured himself, so I obviously replaced him.

"People criticised me for [saying he would be in the squad], but he really does have a calf injury."

Diaby joined Marseille last summer following a nine-year stay at Arsenal.

His last appearance was during the Gunners' 2-1 Capital One Cup loss against Southampton in September 2014.
