Clerc set to undergo knee surgery, out for 6 weeks


SAINT-ETIENNE, France (AP) -Saint-Etienne defender Francois Clerc is set to undergo an operation on his knee and will be out for up to six weeks.

The French club said on its website Wednesday that the 29-year-old Clerc has damaged his right meniscus. The former France right back joined Saint-Etienne in the offseason after spending two seasons with Nice.

Saint-Etienne has made a bright start to the season to be in seventh place ahead of Saturday's home match against last-place Sochaux.
