Marseille coach Jose Anigo believes his team are currently missing Frederic Dehu.Marseille coach Jose Anigo believes his team are currently missing the leadership of Frederic Dehu.
The experienced defender has not played since the opening day of the season and his absence was felt in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Sochaux.
It was l'OM's second consecutive reverse and Anigo acknowledged the impact of Dehu's continued absence from his plans.
"We were defeated logically by the Sochaux team," said Anigo. "I am not downcast but disappointed.
"Now we will undergo lots of criticism. People must not forget we have changed 80 percent of the team in the summer.
"We miss our defensive leader, Frederic Dehu, and we generally miss a leader.
"With what we have to live with, I will see who has got guts inside the group. Some players believe that talent is enough but you also have to stick your neck out.
"The fans are disappointed but they must know we will never give up."
