One week before the AFCON 2024: FECAFOOT OPPOSES ANDRÉ ONANA’S DECISION of the CAN in Ivory Coast, the situation of the Cameroonian goalkeeper playing for Manchester United remains uncertain. The Mancunien goalkeeper will go to the African Cup of Nations very late. .The Athletic media reveals that the Cameroonian will play with the Red Devils against Tottenham on January 14 (5:30 p.m.), before flying to Ivory Coast and joining his selection, which will play on January 15 against Guinea ( 6 p.m.).

Thanks to an amicable agreement reached between all parties, the goalkeeper will be able to defend the colors of his club and his country in just 24 hours. Manchester United recruited Onana in July 2023, when he had withdrawn from the national team and would not participate in the CAN. .finally, he decided to make his return to the selection and was included in the Cameroonian list for the competition.

Given its role in this decision, the Cameroon federation wanted to work with the Mancunian club, in order to find a compromise and maximize Onana's playing time for both teams. If Cameroon fail to advance from their group, which also includes Senegal and Gambia, the 27-year-old goalkeeper may not miss a single match for his club.

If it is certain that he will discuss the match against WIGAN this January 8, his Erik Ten Hag would have liked him to stay until January 14 to play the match against Tottenham. According to indiscretions This last date does not suit FECAFOOT which would like the Cameroonian goalkeeper to join the den after the meeting on January 8.

A saga which risks giving rise to the same episode experienced in Qatar in 2022.
