Marseille top striker, Gomis hit by knee injury


Marseille striker Bafetimbi Gomis, his team’s leading scorer with 16 league goals this season, is expected to miss from four to six weeks with a knee injury picked up in Sunday’s defeat at Nantes.

Gomis scored twice in the 3-2 loss in Ligue 1 but sprained his right knee and suffered ligament damage in a collision with Nantes defender Diego Carlos, RMC Sport reported on Monday.

The 31-year-old, capped 12 times by France, will miss Marseille’s home game against arch rivals and reigning French champions Paris Saint-Germain on February 26 with his absence a damaging blow to the club’s European hopes.

Gomis is on loan from Premier League side Swansea City and equalled his best goals haul for a single season at the weekend, matching his return from 2007-08 with Saint-Etienne and then with Lyon in 2012-13.
