With five goals in nine games for L’OM this season, Gignac has been in top form, and this will come as an untimely blow for a side that topped Ligue 1 before their latest result this weekend.
Speaking to OM.net after the game, Elie Baup confirmed the injury, stating that Gignac had been transported to the hospital for examination.
“This is another negative point but we do not yet know how long he will be out for,” he said.
The 26-year-old was understandably downbeat and though he acknowledged injuries are part of football, he lamented his latest misfortune.
“This is not good news. It’s like that, it’s part of life as a footballer but I have a lot of bad luck, and it’s doubly so because we lost tonight,” Gignac added.The defeat leaves Marseille in second place in Ligue 1, level on 19 points with leaders Paris Saint-Germain who top the table due to their superior goal difference.
