Ayew blow for Marseille
France Ligue 1,
Marseille have been hit by the news Andre Ayew will miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
The Ghana international picked up the injury while playing for his country in the African Cup of Nations in January, but has gone under the knife now because Marseille have little left to play for as they sit in 10th position in Ligue 1.
As a result of having the operation now, Ayew should be fit for the start of next season.
"The operation on the left shoulder of Andre Ayew, conducted on Tuesday in Lyon by Dr Walsch, went smoothly," a club statement said.
"The Ghanaian's comeback is expected in about three months."
