Nice midfielder Sebastien Roudet faces another month of inaction after aggravating his thigh injury.

Roudet had been absent for the past four weeks due to a thigh complaint but made his comeback against Monaco on Saturday.

However, the 23-year-old only succeeded in straining his thigh muscle again and he now requires around another month on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, veteran defender Jose Cobos has acknowledged his joy after signing a new one-year contract.

The 36-year-old is now committed to the club until 2006 and will take up a technical role with Nice when he retires from playing.

"I feel really fine so I can say that I have found an agreement to go on for one more season as a player before joining the technical staff," Cobos told France Football.

"It is a beautiful love story that goes on between OGCN and me."
