Club career[edit]


Kadewere was picked up by Harare City F.C. in 2014 after he had finished playing for his high school team at Prince Edward School.[1] During the first half of his debut season with the first team he scored seven goals in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League.[2]

Djurgårdens IF[edit]

During the summer of 2015 Kadewere went for trials with Swedish first division club Djurgårdens IF and French Ligue 2 side Sochaux.[3] Later he decided to join Djurgårdens IF on a loan in August 2015 for the remainder of the season with an option for the club to sign him permanently on a four-year deal at the end of the year.[4] He made his Allsvenskan debut on 29 August 2015.[2] He later joined Djurgården for a reported sum of 150K Euros.

Kadewere scored his first league goal for the club on 25 July 2016, scoring consolation goal in the 94th minute of a 3–1 home loss to GIF Sundsvall having been subbed on in the 85th minute.[5]

On 27 May 2018, he scored four goals in a league game against IK Sirius, making him the first Djurgården player since Tommy Berggren in 1978 to score four goal in a single league game.[6]

Le Havre[edit]

In July 2018, Kadewere joined French Ligue 2 side Le Havre on a four-year contract.[7] The transfer fee paid to Djurgården was reported as $2.5 million.[8]
