Man United Goalkeeper Andre Onana injured on Cameroon duty

Goalkeeper Andre Onana will return to Manchester United to discover the extent of an injury sustained playing for Cameroon in a World Cup qualifier.

Onana had to be replaced with less than 10 minutes to go in Cameroon’s 3-0 win over Mauritius on Friday after he felt some discomfort.

There are reports that the custodian has suffered an injury to his pubis, one of the bones that make up the pelvis as per the Cameroonian federation. They also confirmed that the United star will return to his club and is set to miss their next qualifier against Libya on Tuesday.

The injury news of their first-choice goalkeeper comes as a huge blow for the Red Devils and Erik ten Hag as the Dutch manager has a long injury list. Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen both had to withdraw from international duty after sustaining injuries while defenders Jonny Evans, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia continue to remain out of action. Casemiro too will not play another game until January.

It remains to be seen if the former Inter star will get fit ahead of United’s Premier League clash against Everton on Sunday. If the 27-year-old fails to regain full fitness, Altay Bayındır could finally make his debut for the club.
