Marseille have been rocked by the news that Loic Remy will be out of action for three weeks, thus ruling him out of the upcoming Champions League last 16 first-leg clash with Inter.
The forward, who was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham in January, underwent a scan on Thursday which revealed a minor hamstring injury.
Consequently, Remy is now set to miss Marseille's upcoming Ligue 1 clashes with Valenciennes, Brest and Toulouse, as well as next Wednesday's visit of the Nerazzurri.
The absence of the France international, who arrived at the Stade Velodrome from Nice in the summer of 2010, is a massive blow for Marseille given he is the club's top scorer this season.
