Marseille striker Cisse could return next month
PARIS, Sept 20 (Reuters) - France and Olympique Marseille striker Djibril Cisse could resume training next month as he continues his recovery from a broken leg, the Ligue 1 club said on Wednesday.
'What I've heard from the medical staff and from the lad himself let me think he could resume training in October,' OM chairman Pape Diouf told the club's Web site.
'Let's be optimistic, we might see him on the pitch at the end of October,' he added.
Cisse missed the World Cup finals in Germany after he broke his leg during France's last warm-up match against China on June 7.
The striker joined Marseille from Liverpool in a season-long loan in July.
