Andrè Onana makes AFCON decision ahead of busy Manchester United schedule



| Last Updated:


Andrè Onana has made an initial decision regarding featuring for Cameroon at AFCON as his Manchester United career takes priority.

Manchester United are set to have a busy winter schedule with AFCON around the corner, with some worried about how the squad will be affected by the tournament.

AFCON is set to take place between 13 January vs 14 February, with Erik ten Hag‘s squad currently scheduled to play four fixtures in that time – but this is without taking into account potential Carabao Cup and FA Cup fixtures.

United started with three African players for the first time against Brentford, with Andrè Onana, Hannibal Mejbri, and Sofyan Amrabat all on the Old Trafford turf.

Andrè Onana, when he signed for United, was retired from the Cameroon national team due to disagreements internally, but has since rejoined the team on a game-by-game basis, but is reluctant to travel to AFCON.

According to ESPN, Onana is “so committed” to making himself a success at United that he does not want to leave for a month if called up by Cameroon for AFCON.

It is said that he initially told Ten Hag that he had no plans to return to Cameroon when he initially signed, but pressure from the Cameroon government and FA changed his mind.

Onana will not be able to make a final decision on his potential AFCON inclusion until the Cameroon FA confirms who they want to call up to the team, but for now, Onana wishes to commit his future to Manchester United.
