Marseille were handed a boost ahead of their crunch Ligue 1 tie against Lyon by the return to training of striker Djibril Cisse.

The 24-year-old moved to the Stade Velodrome on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool in July but has been sidelined by injury since his arrival in France.

Cisse broke his leg in a World Cup warm up match against China but the injury did not stop his loan move to Marseille.

He had originally targeted a return to action in the top-of-the-table clash against l'OL this weekend but is still some way off match fitness.

The former Auxerre striker has now taken the next step on his road to recovery and the sight of him on the Marseille training ground will have pleased the l'OM fans.

"There was a little event at La Commanderie today," an announcement said on the club's official website.

"More than the preparation for the big match Marseille versus Lyon, Djibril Cisse had his first training session.

"The number nine was on the training ground for the first time, he ran a little and touched the ball.

"He is coming back slowly to avoid risks."
