Olympique de Marseille will have to do without Dimitri Payet for the final sprint.

The Marseille club announced the news in a press release on Saturday, two days after the injury contracted by its number 10 against Feyenoord Rotterdam, in the semi-final of the Europa League Conference.

“Dimitri Payet suffered a calf muscle injury assessed by the usual reference examinations.

Treatments have already started, but full recovery will only happen after the end of the championship,” writes OM.

Not good news as the Olympians travel to Lorient on Sunday for the 36th day of Ligue 1 and are in the fight for qualification for the Champions League.

“The hardest thing for me today is not being able to help my teammates in this final stretch, reacted the player on his Instagram account.

The disappointment is great, the pain is strong, but I am well surrounded and all your messages of support give me the strength to look ahead, so next season starts tomorrow for me.
