Marseille fear Benoit Pedretti could require several weeks on the sidelines.Marseille fear summer signing Benoit Pedretti could require several weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Pedretti picked up the problem in the weekend's home victory over Bastia and is due for an MRI scan on Monday.
L'OM coach Jose Anigo believes the arrival from Sochaux has damaged his meniscus which could lead to a prolonged absence for Pedretti.
"We suspect a small meniscus tear," admitted Anigo.
The Marseille chief, though, has received a boost with another summer recruit - Frederic Dehu - ready to return to training.
Dehu has made just one appearance for l'OM due to a calf injury but is due to come back to training on Tuesday.
If he proves his fitness throughout the week, there is a possibility Anigo could select the experienced centre half against Istres on Saturday.
