Following their defeat against Annecy, Marseille has received some good news: Amine Harit has taken another step towards his return to competition.
Three days after their loss to PSG (0-3), Olympique de Marseille has suffered another setback at home. In a surprising turn of events, they lost to the modest team of FC Annecy in the quarterfinals of the Coupe de France (2-2, 6-7 penalties). The Marseille team is out of the competition with a feeling of anger and bitterness.
Now, Marseille will have to quickly recover from this terrible elimination, starting with a win next Sunday on the field of Stade Rennais. The team needs to negotiate this perilous trip well to maintain their place on the podium. In the meantime, Marseille‘s striker Amine Harit is slowly but surely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
OM: Amine Harit resumed the race on Thursday
While it’s not yet time for a return to collective training, the Moroccan international is getting closer day by day. Indeed, a video posted on social media on Thursday evening shows Amine Harit training at La Commanderie with a member of the medical staff. The attacking midfielder for OM has resumed running and is starting the rehabilitation phase on the field, a new step towards his return to competition.
As a reminder, Amine Harit suffered a left knee ligament sprain that prevented him from playing in the World Cup in Qatar with Morocco. After undergoing surgery, the former FC Nantes player seemed almost out for the rest of the season. However, Amine Harit could return to competition earlier than expected.
His feelings in the coming weeks will undoubtedly help to set a date for his return to Ligue 1 fields. It should be noted that Amine Harit had managed to gain Igor Tudor’s trust in the first part of the season. This season, he has played 16 games for OM, scoring once and providing three assists in all competitions.
