Perotti and Zokora sidelined for Sevilla

MADRID - Sevilla winger Diego Perotti and midfielder Didier Zokora suffered leg muscle injuries in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at home to Xerez, the La Liga club said on their website on Wednesday.

Argentine Perotti will be out for between five and seven weeks and Zokora, who plays for Ivory Coast, faces a two-week layoff, said the club, whose coach Manolo Jimenez was sacked after the match.

Perotti and Zokora are hoping to represent their countries at the World Cup in South Africa in June.
