André Onana Finds a Solution to Avoid Missing Games for Man Utd Despite Cameroon Afcon Call-up

Introduction to this article:
The article discusses the dilemma facing goalkeeper Andre Onana as he is set to join the Cameroon squad for the Africa Cup of Nations, while at the same time Manchester United wants to keep him for their upcoming matches.

Onana’s Availability for Man Utd Games

Onana could avoid missing any Man Utd games as he is set to be available for United’s FA Cup third-round clash with Wigan on Monday. However, there are conflicting interests as Erik ten Hag wants him to stay at Old Trafford for another week to take part in the match against Tottenham.

Potential Impact on Cameroon’s Matches

The scheduling conflict poses a challenge for Onana, as playing in the Premier League match against Tottenham could result in less than 24 hours to catch a seven-hour flight to Ivory Coast in time for Monday’s match. Additionally, if Cameroon make it to the final, Onana could potentially miss up to four games for Manchester United.

Implications for Manchester United’s Goalkeeping Situation

The situation also sheds light on the lack of first team opportunities for Ten Hag’s No2, Altay Bayindir, who joined Manchester United on deadline day but is yet to make his first team debut. This raises questions about the team’s goalkeeping depth and the potential impact of Onana’s absence.
