Andre Onana has announced his return to the Cameroon National Return. The Manchester United Goalkeeper took to his Social Media handles to post a message announcing his return to the National team.
“In the world of football, just as in life, defining moments occur, requiring crucial choices. In recent months, I have faced hardships marked by injustice and manipulation. Yet my unwavering love and attachment to my homeland, Cameroon, remains intact.
My desire to represent my country has never wavered since my youth, and this aspiration remains an inseparable part of my identity. Nothing and no one can shake this conviction. I answer the call of my nation with an unshakeable certainty, aware that my return is not only to honor my dream, but also to meet the expectation and support of Cameroonians, who deserve a national team determined to shine.
Faced with manipulation, lies and abuse of power, I choose to remain faithful to my ideal, proudly representing a country that deserves our sincere commitment. It is time to unite, to work in harmony for our common good: Cameroon.
I would like to salute the government which is working relentlessly to build a better Cameroon for all.
My great thoughts go out to the Cameroonian people to whom I say thank you very much for their support and whom I look forward to seeing again.
Time, infallible judge of all things, will eventually enlighten us and reveal the correctness of our actions. My commitment to Cameroon remains unwavering, and I am determined to play my part to see it prosper.
So see you next September 12 in Garoua for our qualification for the next African Cup of Nations Football.
