Marseille's Stephane Mbia says he will not be back in action for at least another 10 days meaning he will miss the French clubs next Champions League match.
The 25-year old Cameroon international broke his foot in August and is close to a comeback but indicates that he will not be back in time for Les Phoceens' fourth group stage match which is a fixture with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on November 1.
"I need to play, I miss playing football every week," he said.
"I think in ten days I should be okay to start playing, fingers crossed.
"Hopefully I can show my value to the club because they need me at the moment. It has been a difficult season for us so far."
