André Onana could come out of early retirement for the clash against Burundi on the 6th and final day of the CAN 2023 qualifiers, as the Cameroonian government negotiates for the goalkeeper’s return to selection.
Discarded from the den of the Indomitable Lions during the 2022 World Cup, accused of insubordination, André Onana immediately announced his international retirement. Since then, the Cameroonian authorities and Fécafoot have been trying in vain to bring the Manchester United goalkeeper back into selection.
And in these last weeks of the clash against Burundi in the CAN 2023 qualifiers, the debate on the case of the native of Nkol Ngok has returned to the table. But this time, it is the central state that leads the discussions. Indeed, according to Footazimuts, the Cameroonian government has been negotiating with the Mancunian for several months for his return to the Indomitable Lions.
“It’s been at least six months that the Government has been negotiating with the player to return to the selection. The love he has above all for his country will probably lead him to accept this outstretched hand from the Government.we read in the columns of the media mentioned above.
André Onana could therefore resume his position in the Cameroonian cages for this decisive shock against the Cameroonian selection. As a reminder, coach Rigobert Song’s team is second in Group C, tied on points with their Burundi opponent. This means that defeat is prohibited so as not to write off continental competition.
