Lyon lose Christophe Jallet for four weeks with shoulder injury

Lyon defender Christophe Jallet will be out for up to four weeks with a left shoulder injury, the Ligue 1 club confirmed on Monday. 

The 31-year-old, who spent five seasons at Paris Saint-Germain winning two French titles, picked up the injury while playing for France in their 2-0 friendly victory over Denmark on Sunday. 

He is the player to used most often by Lyon coach Hubert Fournier but will now miss league matches against Guingamp, Bastia, Saint-Etienne and Reims.

Lyon are involved in a thrilling battle for the French title, lying one point behind defending champions Paris Saint-Germain, after 30 matches, and with Marseille third a further point adrift.
