André Onana “flew into a rage” ahead of Cameroon’s win over Gambia



| Last Updated:


André Onana was reportedly involved in a verbal fight with Cameroon FA President Samuel Eto’o ahead of their 3-2 win over Gambia.

André Onana was relegated to the bench as Cameroon reigned victorious over Gambia on Tuesday evening in their third fixture of the AFCON tournament.

Much has been made of his time in the Ivory Coast, from missing training camps to play for Manchester United to starting in a 3-1 loss against Senegal – it has been anything but a success so far.

According to Sport News, a source close to the Cameroon squad who spoke to the media, an altercation took place between Onana and the president of the Cameroonian federation Samuel Eto’o. The United goalkeeper “flew into a rage” after learning that he would not start for this Gambia tie.

Further reports have stated that Eto’o himself told Cameroon manager Rigobert Song that Onana must be dropped ahead of the fixture.

Nevertheless, he eventually regained composure and was spotted cheering for his team, who successfully defeated Gambia in a thrilling match. This triumph secures the Indomitable Lions a spot in the tournament’s round of 16.

This will mean that Onana will not be present in Manchester for the club’s FA Cup fourth-round tie away against Newport County on Sunday evening.

Altay Bayındır will, therefore, be handed a debut under Erik ten Hag after signing on a 5-year contract in the summer.
