Gignac ready to shine

Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is back to full fitness and feels he can again make an impact after a disappointing two years in the south of France.

Gignac, who joined the club in 2010 for around 20 million euros, has already scored twice this season to help Marseille to the top of Ligue 1 with nine points from three games.

"I always wanted to give my best but I could not as I never was completely fit," Gignac, who was the Ligue 1 top scorer with 24 goals in 2008-09, told the club website ahead of Marseille's game against Stade Rennes on Sunday.

"I work a lot and I am getting close to my top form.

"I owe the club a lot, the fans who had were been disappointed with me. But this is over. I am back with a vengeance."
