Brazilian striker Brandao has joined Marseille from Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk on a 3 1/2-year contract.
The French club presented the player Wednesday to reporters. He said he was just back from nearly a month's vacation in Brazil and hoped to be fit in a week. He won't play against Le Havre on Saturday in the league.
The 28-year-old Brandao scored 13 goals in 2006 to help Shakhtar win the Ukrainian league title.
Marseille coach Erik Gerets wanted to strengthen his attack with Mamadou Niang sidelined after breaking a bone in his right foot.
