Season over as Lyon's Govou ruptures Achilles

Season over as Lyon's Govou ruptures Achilles

France and Lyon striker Sidney Govou will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon during training Wednesday, his club said.
The 29-year-old forward did not play in last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Lorient in the French league because of a groin injury and resumed training this week.
Lyon has a one-point lead over second-place Bordeaux in the French league but has only won one of its last six games. It will play Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League, which starts next month.
