Manchester United and Cameroon goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has been nominated for the prestigious Goalkeeper of the Year award at the upcoming CAF Awards 2023.
This recognition comes after Onana’s remarkable display of skill and talent on the field especially at previous club Inter Milan where he helped the team reach the UEFA Champions League finals last season.
What sets Onana apart is not just his exceptional performance for his club, but also his dedication to his national team, Cameroon. After a previous dispute with Cameroon’s coach, Rigobert Song, Onana retired from international duty in 2022, but a cameo for national duty recently when he agreed to play for Cameroon in the upcoming 2024 Africa Cup of Nations Finals.
This decision highlights Onana’s commitment to representing his country on the international stage, demonstrating his passion for the sport and the pride he takes in wearing the national jersey.
The Goalkeeper of the Year award is a new addition to the annual CAF Awards, marking the first time that goalkeepers will be acknowledged for their outstanding performances.
Onana faces tough competition from other talented goalkeepers, including Mohamed ElShenawy from Egypt and Al Ahly, Yassine Bounou from Morocco, Al Hilal, and many more.
The nomination of these ten players further expands the network of winners for this highly anticipated event, recognizing the pivotal role that goalkeepers play in the world of football.
The winner of the Goalkeeper of the Year award will be eagerly anticipated by fans and the football community alike, as they look forward to celebrating the outstanding achievements of these exceptional athletes.
