Cuisance joined OM from Bayern Munich in the final days of the summer market, but only after a move to Leeds fell through after club medics identified a potential 'future injury'.
Cuisance stated: "I was not afraid to work with (Marcelo) Bielsa, but it never happened. It was not done with Leeds. I still don't know why.
"But so much the better because today it allows me to be at OM. The Champions League was an important element for me. I made the final 8 with Bayern, it made me want to play in it more. The fact that Marseille is playing it made me want to come here."
