Olympique Marseille are seeking compensation from FIFA over Andre Ayew’s injury on international duty for Ghana.
The midfielder injured his knee during last Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Egypt in the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals playoff return leg.
The 23-year-old had to be substituted by Mubarak Wakaso as the Black Stars secured qualification to the finals with a 7-3 aggregate win.
Ayew is set for eight weeks on the sidelines and reports by RMC Radio say Marseille have asked FIFA to be compensated.
Under the FIFA insurance policy, after the 28th day of injury, the club will receive €20,548 for every day the player is injured, which in Ayew’s case will be two months.
Marseille are now hoping to get between five and six hundred thousand euros.
