French giants Marseille suffered another injury blow today as it was revealed star Ghanaian winger Andre Ayew would be out for up to ten days because of a left groin injury.

According to the club's medical staff, the 21-year-old -- son of African and Marseille legend Abedi Pele -- suffered the injury during Ghana's 1-0 friendly defeat by Brazil on Monday.

Ayew - whose performances last season garnered him young player of the year awards at both club and national level - will miss Saturday's Ligue 1 match at home to Rennes and next week's opening UEFA Champions League group match against Olympiakos in Athens.
