Andre Ayew is back in training for Marseille

Andre Ayew has begun full scale training at Marseille ahead of Sunday’s French Ligue 1 visit to Sochaux.

The Ghana international suffered a hamstring injury last week in training and was ruled out for a few days.

The 23-year-old joined his teammates on Friday morning and should be named in the squad.

Marseille are also welcoming back Morgan Amalfitano and Lucas Mendes from injury.

“There were players in question since the beginning of the week but for the first time today (Friday), they returned to the group,” Marseille coach Elie Baup said.

“But whether they will be fully available for the match against Sochaux on Sunday and including André Ayew, We’ll see tomorrow (Saturday)

“But it is obvious that it is almost three weeks since the break and he did not have a lot of training sessions.”

Ayew’s injury led to his exclusion from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

He scored five goals in 18 appearances in the French Ligue 1 before the winter break.
