2023 AFCON: Cameroon Government Influences Return Of Onana


The reason Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana returned to the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon has been revealed as the government staged his comeback.

The lanky goalkeeper left the Cameroonian camp in Qatar during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and further announced his retirement from International football.

But later rescinded the decision and returned to the team ahead of the 2023 African Cup of Nations.

According to the source In Cameroon, the government of the country ordered the return of Onana and to date, he and the country’s Football president Samuel Eto don’t see eye to eye.

” The relationship between the two men has been at a standstill since André was sidelined during the World Cup in Qatar.

His return to the selection results from an instruction from the Cameroonian government authorities, Fécafoot having never taken any initiative in this direction. We do everything to keep up appearances within the team.

But everyone has seen that since his return, André and Eto’o have completely ignored and avoided each other.

They are two men with strong personalities and who each have a certain influence within the national team.

Their relationship is broken, and this could affect the atmosphere within the team,” the source said.
