Abdul Majeed Waris’ poor start to the French Ligue 1 season continued on Friday night when his Lorient side was beaten 2-0 away at Marseille.
The goals were scored either side of half-time at the Stade Velodrome by former Newcastle man, Remy Cabella who fired home in the 19th minute before Bafetimbi Gomis ended the contest with a 70th-minute strike.
The 24-year-old forward is yet to find the target in Lorient’s opening three games which have all ended in defeat.
Much was expected from the player after he bagged 12 goals in 23 appearances for Lorient last season but he has found it difficult to recapture his scoring form.
Lorient lost 3-2 on an opening day to Caen in a game which saw the Right to Dream graduate substituted in the 75th minute.
Last weekend he played full throttle as Lorient suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss at home to Bastia. Lorient will host Nancy after the international break on August 10.
