Olympique Lyon coach Rudi Garcia has expressed satisfaction over the progress Zimbabwean striker Tino Kadewere has made at the French Ligue 1 side.
The 24-year-old joined Les Gones after an unforgettable 2019/20 campaign at Ligue 2 side Le Havre and appears to have settled after a difficult start, progress which has not gone unnoticed by his coach.
Speaking to reporters ahead of Sunday’s home game against St Etienne, Garcia said:
Tino is important because he gets involved in games. He is good with his back to goal and his one-touch game is good, he has good movement, he is selfless.
He is a tall player with headers so he can help upfront and also comes to help at the back defending free-kicks.
I’m happy because Tino is a good guy even though there is a lot of competition here.
Kadewere has started in the last four league games and has played on the right side a front three alongside captain Memphis Depay and Carl Toko Ekambi.
He opened his account in the 3-2 win over Strasbourg last month.
