Manchester United and Cameroon goalkeeper André Onana was forced off with an injury whilst playing for the national side in their 3-0 win against Mauritius.
The Cameroonian Football Federation confirmed in a statement that the Manchester United goalkeeper will not play in Tuesday’s game against Libya:
"“The Cameroonian Football Federation informs public opinion that the player Andre Onana, injured during the match against Mauritius on November 17, 2023 in Douala, is not part of the delegation of the Indomitable Lions currently in Benghazi.”"
Early reports over the weekend have suggested that Onana’s injury is not as serious as it initially looked and if this is to be believed then the goalkeeper is not expected to miss any games for the Red Devils.
United’s summer signing Altay Bayindir has yet to make his debut for the club, and under usual circumstances probably would have done so. However, United’s worst start to a season since the 1960’s has not left much room for experimentation as the pressure mounts under Erik Ten Hag.
Red Devil Armada’s verdict:
The injury curse continues for Manchester United even when they are not kicking a ball. However on this occasion, it looks to be more of a scare than anything else. With the likes of Højlund being a doubt and Christian Eriksen being out indefinitely, the goalkeeping position is certainly not another area that United need a crisis in, especially when Onana is looking like he is settling in after an initial bumpy period.
