Cisse fit to resume playing for Marseille

December 7, 2006

PARIS, Dec 7 (Reuters) - France striker Djibril Cisse has recovered from a broken leg and could resume playing for Olympique Marseille this weekend, his club said on Thursday.

Coach Albert Emon told reporters Cisse would be in his squad for a home Ligue 1 game against Monaco on Saturday but did not specify whether the former Liverpool forward would be in the starting line-up.

Cisse broke his right shinbone and fibula in a friendly international against China on June 7. The injury ruled him out of the World Cup finals in Germany.
