He is a player who knows Ligue 1 and has experience. He is able to play on the side, he is able to play in the axis, he is able to play in several systems. I know that he has had a difficult time in Lyon, I know the context and I tell myself that in a more reassuring context and where he will be more confident, we can revive him.he said at the microphone of RMC Sports.

This season, Karl Toko Ekambi has scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 19 appearances. Statistics less impressive than those of last season. The Cameroonian international seems like his teammates to have had a difficult time during the first part of the exercise, during which some fans criticized him.
