Defender Frederic Dehu could be nearing first return for Marseille.Frederic Dehu could be nearing a first team return for Marseille after recovering from the calf injury that has kept him on the sidelines this term.
The former Paris Saint Germain ace has played just once for l'OM following his summer move but is now ready to help lead the team from the back.
Dehu does not want to rush his comeback as the defender is keen to avoid any further setbacks that could lead to another spell on the sidelines.
"I am fine. I am now working on regaining my fitness, but I don't want to cut corners," said Dehu to L'Equipe.
"Several times after my injury I thought I could return and then I was disappointed. Anyway, for the moment it's going well.
"I don't know if I am a leader in the squad. It is difficult to be in the squad when you are not playing.
"I am able to resume our training sessions. I will resume my full-time job.
"People are expecting me to help, but they can't expect everything from me.
"The team and the players have already showed a lot of qualities. Frederic Dehu won't change the l'OM situation."
