"Salary Payment Delays Affected Kadewere"

Warriors forward Tinotenda Kadewere’s poor form during the 2021/22 season in the French Ligue 1 may have partly been caused by a delay in the payment of his wages.

According to French publication L’Équipe, the situation was eventually resolved and the player was paid the €200 000 he was owed by his club, Lyon.

Another French publication wrote:

L’Équipe’s lengthy dissection of Lyon’s shambolic season notably claims that the club only partly paid striker Tino Kadewere’s wages while he was injured.

The Zimbabwean forward, who has been with the club since 2020, was reportedly owed over €200 000 in unpaid wages by the club, having been sidelined in September and had trouble over the winter months.

Kadewere has struggled to return to action as a result of this episode which affected him greatly, scoring just one goal this season in 15 appearances.

The situation was eventually resolved and the player was paid, after a lengthy delay.

L’Équipe points out that Kadewere is one of the Lyon players to have essentially given up this season, as has been the case with defender Jason Denayer in light of the news that he would not be offered an extension.

The Zimbabwean international also struggled to make an impact at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals that were held in January and February 2022. 

Kadewere failed to score a single goal at AFCON while his Lyon teammate and Cameroonian winger Karl Toko Ekambi scored 5 goals.
