Manchester United Goalkeeper Andre Onana Withdraws from Cameroon Squad Due to Groin Injury
Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana has been forced to withdraw from the Cameroon squad after sustaining a groin injury during a match against Mauritius. The injury occurred on Friday and Onana had to be substituted. The Cameroon Football Federation confirmed his withdrawal after conducting tests with the medical team.
In a statement, the Cameroonian football federation said, “The Cameroonian football federation informs public opinion that player Andre Onana, injured and out injured during the match against Mauritius on November 17 in Douala, is not part of the delegation of the Indomitable Lions currently in Benghazi. The medical imaging carried out by the doctors of the national selection revealed a condition in the pubis. Fecafoot (Cameroon FA) wishes a speedy recovery to the Cameroonian international.”
This injury comes as a setback for Onana, who was starting to establish himself at Manchester United. He may face several weeks on the sidelines, potentially requiring Erik ten Hag to rely on backup goalkeeper Altay Bayındır. Bayındır, who joined United from Fenerbahce in the summer, is yet to make his debut for the club. United signed him for £4.3 million on the deadline day.
