PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Olivier Kemen

Featured in the Raumdeuter Online Magazine – Edition #1

Olivier Kemen may not be a name too familiar to many football fans outside of France, but the Frenchman did spend time at Premier League side Newcastle United as a youngster.

The 23-year-old midfielder spent two years from 2013 to 2015 on Tyneside, with his future promise lauded at the time.

However, Kemen never quite managed to live up to expecations and the Cameroon-born footballer moved on elsewhere. Landing at Lyon, he mostly played for the second team – though did make four senior league appearances.

An impressive two-season loan spell at Ligue 2 side Gazelec Ajaccio reaffirmed his promise, and now he looks to kick on at fellow second-tier side Chamois Niortais.
