Cisse hopes to make rapid return for OM
PARIS, Nov 7 (Reuters) - France striker Djibril Cisse, who broke his leg five months ago, believes he will be back in action with Olympique Marseille next week.
The former AJ Auxerre player, who has been loaned to the Provence side by Liverpool, hopes he can bring Marseille the panache they lack to get back to the top of Ligue 1.
'I should be back into competitive football by mid-November,' the 25-year-old told the weekly France Football magazine on Tuesday.
Cisse, who was included in the France squad for the World Cup finals in Germany, broke his shinbone and fibula in a warm-up international against China in St Etienne on June 7.
'I never had any doubt I would be back,' Cisse said, referring to the same injury he sustained with Liverpool against Blackburn Rovers two years before.
'I want to bring Marseille back as high as possible even if I've missed the beginning of the season. I know that I'm going to be back to my best.
'After my first injury, it took me one month to get back on top. It should be the same this time,' he added.
'I have to bring some panache, try things people will not always understand.'
Marseille have slipped to sixth in Ligue 1 after three straight defeats.
Cisse, who has scored nine goals in 30 games for France, was Ligue 1 top scorer in 2002 and 2004 with 22 and 26 goals respectively.
