Diaby to return after injury lay-off

Abou Diaby is set to resume training with the Marseille squad on Monday after missing most of the season because of an ankle injury.

The ex-Arsenal star began the season as a first-team regular, starting the first two Ligue 1 matches for then coach Franck Passi.

But the 30-year-old injured his right ankle in September and underwent an operation in October - another setback for the injury-prone midfielder.

Diaby underwent a graft of the posterior tibial tendon and a ligament stabilisation of his ankle in London.

He was scheduled to be out for four months after the operation but it took a month longer than expected before he could resume training.
