After Cameroon goal keeper, Andre Onana arrived Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast yesterday to join his fellow team mates, he had a series of interviews with platforms like New World TV and other media outlets as the superstar that he’s.
Below are some questions extracted from Andre Onana’s interviews in Ivory Coast after Cameroon begged a draw with 10 man Guinea.
Journalist: Don’t you feel tired after the journey?
Andre Onana; No. I’m ok
Journalist: What do you feel about the team after your arrival hours ago
Andre Onana: We have a great team. We are a great football nation. The team is doing fine. I’ve known these guys for a long time and we’ve played together.
At the moment, it’s difficult because when you wear the Cameroon outfit, your intention is to win. Cameroon cannot afford to play a draw. We are disappointed but that’s football. Everything is temporary. We did our best. Just that we did not take advantage of our opportunities. The Guinean goalkeeper made great saves. The most important is the next match.
Journalist: Next match, will you be part of the team?
Andre Onana: I have no idea. I’m not the coach . The most important is collective play and for my country to win.
I am very proud to be here to represent my country, my continent. It is an honor. We have excellent goalkeepers, the coach will decide who plays.
New World TV interview with Andre Onana
“I have a lot to say but I won’t say it here because we are in competition. The most important thing is sacred union. We are here to win the AFCON.
I ask the supporters to support us in good times and bad…
I am one of the leaders so I take my responsibilities and that is why I am here.
I don’t want people to criticize the younger players. Let people continue to criticize me, I’m used to it, I do what is good for my country. It’s like choosing between my father and my mother, but my country comes first, that’s why I’m here. We’re together.” 🦁
