WARRIORS striker Tino Kadewere’s hopes of playing in the Uefa Champions League next season received a blow on Friday, but the expected return to La Liga action in Spain has given Lyon a glimmer of hope that they can fight for their place in Europe’s premier club competition.

Lyon said in a statement: “Olympique Lyonnais welcomes the decision this Saturday by Pedro Sanchez, the Spanish President, as his government authorised the resumption of La Liga from June 12.
