The lengthy suspension of André Onana

André Onana is one of Africa’s best goalkeepers. Currently, bet in Nigeria is possible on, where punters can also wager on all the matches where he participates. The player started his youth career in the academy of none other than Samuel Eto’o in his native Cameroon. The rest of his youth and senior career were completed in teams like:

  • Barcelona;
  • Jong Ajax;
  • and Ajax.

It was in the Dutch team where the goalkeeper made his breakthrough into senior football. In fact, in 2016, when he was only 20 years old, he was already the starting goalkeeper of Ajax’s senior team. It is possible to bet in Nigeria on 1xBet on all the games of the Dutch team.

A promising international career

Onana began his senior international career in 2016. However, prior to his senior debut, he had already played a few games on some youth Cameroonian squads. All these squads can be wagered on by visiting the betting platform.

The goalkeeper played his first game for the senior Cameroonian squad in 2016, when he was also 20 years old. From that moment he became one of the regular starters on Cameroon’s goal, where he rotated with his cousin Fabrice Ondoa.

Unfortunately for Onana, his international and domestic careers would have a serious disruption. This put his career under serious threat. The 1xBet mobile website is a great place to wager on the Cameroonian national squad from tablets and smartphones.

The wrong medicine

The goalkeeper received a devastating blow in February 2021. After having a routine examination, it was discovered that he had consumed the medicine Furosemide. Apparently, this was discovered after playing a match for Ajax. The live casino only from 1xBet features excellent forms of entertainment that can be played before Ajax’s next game begins.

Furosemide is a medication used to treat fluid build-up in a person’s body. However, it is also a substance that is totally banned in competitive sports. The goalkeeper argued that his wife was being treated with said medicine, and that he consumed it accidentally.

Despite his defense, André Onana received a lengthy 12-month suspension from any form of professional football. This meant that his domestic and international career were put on a one-year hiatus. The keeper appealed and had his punishment reduced to 9 months. However, it was still quite long. Before the next game where Onana plays begins, make sure to play only from the great 1xBet live casino, where excellent forms of entertainment await.
