Ghana international Andre Ayew could not feature for Turkish side Fenerbahce when they lost 1-0 to Benfica on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League.
The 28-year-old missed the game due to an injury he suffered during training five days ago.
Fenerbahce were hoping to have the Swansea City loanee back to feature for them in the game at the Estádio da Luz which they lost narrowly but he could not recover in time.
Philip Cocu’s side will be hoping to have him for the reverse fixture next week.
