Andre-Pierre Gignac has expressed his frustration at filling back-up duties at Marseille.
The France international striker moved to Stade Velodrome last summer in a £16million deal, having enhanced his reputation with Toulouse.
He was expected to fill the void created by Mamadou Niang's departure and help fire l'OM to consecutive Ligue 1 crowns.
Gignac has, however, drifted in and out of the side and is yet to break into double figures for the season in terms of goals.
His failure to produce his best has seen him overlooked by Didier Deschamps on several occasions and the 25-year-old admits he is starting to lose patience.
"I don't want to be the last throw of the dice," Gignac told OM TV.
"I don't want to come on from the bench in the 60th minute of every game. I didn't come to the club for that. But I don't make the decisions."
Meanwhile, Marseille chairman Jean-Claude Dassier has again expressed his belief that Deschamps, who continues to be linked with various managerial posts across Europe, will remain at the club for the 2011/12 campaign.
He told L'Equipe: "Didier Deschamps? If you have to keep asking, I am willing to bet a lot of money that he will stay here."
Marseille have also blocked Jordan Ayew from linking up with Ghana at the African U20 Championships, which begin in South Africa this weekend.
