PARIS (Reuters) – Olympique de Marseille midfielder Florian Thauvin will be sidelined until the winter break because of ankle surgery, the Ligue 1 club said on Wednesday.

The French international picked up an injury almost five months ago and made his return to the first team but cannot perform at his best, OM said in a statement.

“So that he can perform at 100 percent, Florian and Olympique de Marseille have decided he would undergo some minor surgery in the coming days,” the club said.

Marseille are eighth in Ligue 1 with seven points from four games.
