Tino Kadewere, the 25-year-old center forward, reportedly suffered a tear in his thigh according to the French press. He will most likely be out of the field for three weeks.
If the former striker of CR Belouizdad is also out for Thursday’s meeting against Red Star in the Coupe de France for suspension, he will be back on Sunday against SCO Angers in the league.
Arrived in Lyon last January, the Algerian striker scored three goals and offered three assists in 11 matches in all competitions. A good start after a first half of the white season at Leicester City.
Having had guarantees of a minimum of playing time from Rudi Garcia, Islam Slimani could well take advantage of the absence of his competitor to demonstrate that he deserves a starting place.
