Another funny evening for the Olympique Lyonnais striker, author of a new poor performance.
The season is starting to be long for Olympique Lyonnais, it must be even longer for Karl Toko Ekambi. This Saturday, OL lost at home against Strasbourg and points to eighth place in the championship at mid-season. Only 25 points in 19 days.
There is a player for whom the season must be even longer: Karl Toko Ekambi. Since the start of the season, the Cameroonian international striker (55 selections) has been chaining poor performances. Despite the confidence of his coaches – Peter Bosz, then Laurent Blanc – the number 7 Lyonnais has only scored four goals this season. He who has yet played all the matches.
Toko Ekambi goes to the locker room when he leaves
And impatience begins to rise more and more among the supporters. Karl Toko Ekambi taken to task by supporters, whistled on each of his ball shots. It must be said that the former Angers player again showed clumsiness and many bad choices this Saturday against Strasbourg. Within a rather pleasant and dominant Lyon team (72% possession, 28 shots), “KTE” once again distinguished itself by its failures: only one shot on target out of five attempted, six balls lost.
Unhappy after a failed raise on the opener from Jean-Eudes Aholou (29th), Karl Toko Ekambi is the first player replaced by Laurent Blanc. Released on the hour mark (58th) for Bradley Barcola. The former Angers player will then let his anger burst by returning directly to the locker room.
In the corridor of Groupama Stadium, “KTE”, frustrated, knocked twice in a trash can before heading for the locker room. He will return to the edge of the lawn a few minutes later. One more file for Laurent Blanc, Jean-Michel Aulas, John Textor and others.
