Cedrick Mabwati Gerard (born 8 March 1992), simply known as Cedrick, is a Congolese professional footballer who plays for CA Osasuna on loan from Real Betis in Spain, as a winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Kinshasa, Cedrick arrived in Spain in his early teens, moving with his family from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and joining Atlético de Madrid's youth system at the age of 13. Only three years later he made his senior debuts, going on to spend two full seasons with the B-team in the third division.

On 6 January 2010, not yet aged 18, Cedrick made his first-team debut with the Colchoneros, against Recreativo de Huelva for the season's Copa del Rey: after committing a penalty in the early minutes of the game, he was replaced shortly after by manager Quique Flores in an eventual 0–3 away loss (5–4 aggregate win).[1] In the ensuing summer he was loaned to CD Numancia in the second level, in a season-long move.[2]

During his three-year spell in Soria Cedrick was an automatic first-choice, scoring nine goals in his first season. On 10 June 2013 he bought out his contract with Numancia for a mere 1,20 and signed with Real Betis.[3] He made his La Liga debut on 18 August by starting in a 1–2 defeat at Real Madrid, and totalled 1,129 minutes of action in 12 starts in his debut campaign as the Andalusians were relegated.

On 28 August 2014 Cedrick was loaned to CA Osasuna, also in the second level.[4]

International career[edit]

Aged only 17, Cedrick started appearing with the DR Congo under-20s.
