Lyon’s Kadewere strikes again


Zimbabwe international Tino Kadewere continued his rich vein of form when he scored in Lyon’s convincing 4-1 win over Nice in a Ligue 1 encounter played on Saturday.

The Warriors forward, who joined the club during pre-season, has scored six goals and made two assists in 15 outings.

His Nertherlands teammate Memphis Depay, formerly with Manchester United, has praised Kadewere and Cameroonian Karl Toko Ekambi after they both scored on Saturday, adding to his strike to keep Lyon at the top of the table.

Saturday’s victory saw Lyon remain at the top of the log with 33 points from 16 games, one and two points ahead of Lille and Paris Saint Germain respectively.

“I am happy with the victory. We came to win so we are satisfied. I am happy with the relationship among myself, Toko Ekambi and Kadewere,” Depay told the club’s website.

Kadewere also felt they combined well with Depay and Ekambi. “We played well together, Toko Ekambi, Memphis, and myself everything is going well. It’s good for the whole attacking line to score,” he said.

Lyon manager Rudi Garcia was also impressed by the combination. “My strikers Tino and Karl are currently in the best form of their careers. Their effort and contribution keeps the team going forward. For me, both had a wonderful game, they can share the man-of-the-match award,” he said.
