Man United are now sweating on the fitness of Andre Onana, after the goalkeeper suffered a problem while away with Cameroon.
Manchester United’s season can be single-handedly defined by the sheer number of injuries suffered by their players. At this point, I’m starting to seriously question what’s going on at the AON Training Complex as this volume of treatment table woes just feels unheard of…
The international break was supposed to be a period to allow United some time to get players back. Instead, the woes are continuing. The latest player to go down with an injury is Andre Onana.
The goalkeeper was playing for Cameroon against Mauritius last night, though he’d suffer an adductor injury, according to Actu Cameroun. United are now sweating on the fitness of their key first-teamer, who is set to undergo medical examinations to determine the extent of the issue.
Onana was signed this summer to become the new first-choice goalkeeper at the Theatre of Dreams, with the ex-Inter Milan man playing some good stuff, particularly over the last few weeks.
Adductor issues can be serious. It just all depends on the severity. The last thing United need right now is to lose Onana for multiple weeks or months, particularly as we’re about to enter the hectic winter schedule.
In terms of replacements, this is why you sign Altay Bayindir. The reports suggest that the man from Turkey has looked decent in training, so now he’s going to get the opportunity to prove his worth. I’d be very surprised if Onana is ready to take on Everton this weekend, even if it’s just a minor adductor problem.
We should hear more about the severity of the issue in the not too distant future.
