TINO Kadewere’s endorsement by one of the world’s best strikers Karim Benzema could propel the Zimbabwean to a new level.

The Real Madrid striker, formerly a Lyon player, posted on his Twitter account pushing his former club to do well against Saint-Etienne, a match Lyon won 5-0.

And in that tweet, he specifically mentions Tino to continue shining, and the Zimbabwean scored a brace in response.

“Lyonnais tonight you can make a whole city proud and happy, we are all behind you! And Tino keep making your dreams come true!”

Kadewere’s brace brought his tally to nine goals this season, making him one of the best-attacking players in French Ligue 1.

His influence and that of attacking partners, Memphis Depay and Karl Ekambi, has made Lyon dream again in terms of winning the league title.

Benzema was a huge influence at Lyon during his time, and he won three league titles with the club.
