After Angers-OL: It's 5 in 5 for Tino Kadewere
Two weeks after his “dream” double in the derby, Tino Kadewere continued his momentum against Angers. On the verge of opening the scoring from a header after a cross by Memphis in the first half, he finally delivered the opener for his teammates 10 minutes from time after a fine control and volley. It was a goal which, in addition to sealing the victory for his teammates, allowed him to join Karl Toko Ekambi on four goals this season. The Zimbabwean has now been involved in five goals in the last five matches: four goals and an assist, it is also his fourth goal from his last four shots on target! He also scored a goal for his national team in the last break -- and his success coincides with the rise of Rudi Garcia's men up the table as these five matches correspond to four wins and a draw.
Whether nominally positioned sometimes on the right, or sometimes to the left of the striker, Kadewere is in fact quite free in his movement and uses his pace and his sense of positioning to offer his teammates many possibilities. Capable of receiving a cross as against Angers, as well as breaking down an entire defense as in his second goal in the derby, the forward has shown he can do almost anything in the attacking positions. It's a versatility which also allows him to foster a relationship with any of his fellow attackers, even if he has played most often alongside Memphis and Toko Ekambi, as Sunday he linked with the Dutchman and Moussa Dembélé for of the goal, providing the breakthrough against Angers. This is surely proof, if it were ever needed, of his successful integration into the squad.
We are happy because we won, we had to move up the table. We had a very good match... We played together... For me, it's going very well, I'm playing in a very good team, it's wonderful! Now we will do everything to continue winning.
