Evian forward Sidney Govou refuses to be consumed by concern over his future despite having to undergo knee surgery.

The former France international, who spent 10 years with Lyon, suffered a knee injury during his side's Ligue 1 victory at Lille on March 16.

The 33-year-old was operated on three days later and he is set to miss the remainder of the season.

Govou, however, refuses to be worried and put the injury into perspective.

He told France Football: "I am not very anxious. The people around me are more worried than me. I try to comfort them.

"But this is not the end of the world. I will walk again, run again, and if it works well, will play football again."
