Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembélé have sent a message to their Lyon team-mate Tinotenda Kadewere following the death of the Warriors striker’s older brother – Prince – last week.

Tinotenda flew back to Zimbabwe for the funeral and was not present to cheer for his team when they progressed to the semifinal round of the Champions League after beating Manchester City 3-1 on Saturday. He is not taking part in the competition because he is not registered.

But the 24-year old was in the thoughts of his team-mates who paid their tribute before and during the Champions League match.

Depay went on to post a message on his Twitter after the game, comforting Kadewere.

He said: “Tino, we keep you and your family in our prayers! #WalkInFaithNotBySight.”

Dembélé, who scored a brace against Manchester City, dedicated the victory to Kadewere.

The striker said: “My brother Tino this victory is for you, be strong my brother!”
