Indomitable Lions striker Karl Toko Ekambi has been confirmed positive for the COVID-19. The player tested positive on Friday when the Lyon players returned from the Christmas break, lequipe reported.
The striker had been hoping to be in action for his side this Wednesday, January 5 against Lens in matchday 18 of the French Ligue, but that is now impossible.
Olympique Lyonnais will miss the services of Toko Ekambi who is in isolation from his squad. The player has been invaluable for Coach Maxwel Cornet and Lyon this season.
Karl Toko Ekambi is currently the club’s top goal scorer in the Ligue with 9 goals, goals that have helped Lyon stay top of the Ligue with 36 points in 17 games played. This is a great improvement for a player that succeeded in scoring just 2 goals in the Ligue in 8 appearances.
Lyon is currently level on points with Lille and just one point ahead of last year’s champions PSG.
Toko Ekambi will thus be hoping to add to his goal-scoring records when he returns to the squad. In 31 appearances for Lyon in all competitions, Karl Toko Ekambi has scored 11 goals.
