Marseille boss Elie Baup told the club's official website: "This is more bad news, but we don't know how long he will be out for yet."

The south coast club lost 1-0 to the strugglers to miss the chance to go clear of Paris St Germain at the top of the table.

Gignac said: "This is not good news. It's part and parcel of being a footballer, but I often have bad luck."
