Andre Onana to miss Tottenham game and Afcon opener on the same weekend following Man Utd player’s change of mind

Introduction to this article:
The article discusses the decision made by Andre Onana to prioritize playing for Manchester United in their Premier League match against Tottenham over representing Cameroon in their opening Africa Cup of Nations match.

Onana to Miss Cameroon’s AFCON Opener

Despite struggling for form at his new club, Onana had initially planned to feature in both the United-Tottenham match and Cameroon’s AFCON opener against Guinea. However, it has been decided that he will not be available for the AFCON match, opting to prepare and be ready for their second game against Senegal.

Onana’s Decision and Previous Retirement

This decision comes after a previous retirement from international duty by Onana, following a fallout with the Cameroon national team manager during the World Cup camp. He later reversed this decision after joining Manchester United.

Impact of Onana’s Absence

Onana’s absence means Altay Bayindir, who joined United last summer, is likely to make his debut as goalkeeper, with Tom Heaton as another possible option. Onana’s struggles at United, conceding 45 goals and keeping only nine clean sheets, highlight the challenge the team may face in his absence.
