Fresh concern for Man Utd as Andre Onana picks up injury on World Cup qualifying duty for Cameroon

Manchester United have a fresh concern with goalkeeper Andre Onana being substituted with an injury on international duty on Friday.

The Cameroon international had a difficult start to his United career but he has managed to redeem himself over the past few weeks.

Onana recently joined his country for their World Cup qualifiers against Mauritius and Libya.

He started against the former yesterday but was forced off the field in the 80th minute. The Indominable Lions were leading 1-0 at the time.

Fabrice Ondoa replaced the 27-year-old off the bench. The west African giants went on to secure a comfortable 3-0 win at home.

Man Utd suffer potential injury blow on Onana

The €40 million-rated star has been an undisputed starter for United since joining the club from Inter Milan in the last transfer window.

There was criticism over his performances at the start of the campaign but manager Erik ten Hag has started him in every game so far.

He has not contemplated a change but may have to consider if Onana does not recover from his injury ahead of the away Everton clash.

United have a quality back-up in Altay Bayindir. The Turkish star was the number one choice for Fenerbahce before his transfer.

He has not got a look in thus far but may get the opportunity after the international break if Onana has suffered a concerning injury.

Cameroon face Libya on the road on Tuesday. We should get a clear update on Onana’s condition in the lead-up to the World Cup qualifier.
