Football: Malouda sidelined for three weeks

Metz midfielder Florent Malouda will be out of action for at least three weeks after picking up a thigh muscle strain in the 2-0 defeat at Lyon at the weekend, the club announced on Wednesday.

Former France international Malouda, 34, went off after 25 minutes against his old club as defeat saw Metz slump deeper into the relegation mire and are now bottom, two points from safety.
