Inter-linked goalkeeper Andre Onana feels that he has hardly lost any quality or motivation due to the one-year doping suspension which he served last year.
Speaking to French newspaper L’Equipe in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 25-year-old emphasized that he has come back hungry and has also kept his quality up, and that this was noted by his coach at Ajax Erik Ten Hag.
Onana has completed his medicals with Inter for a summer move on a free transfer from Ajax, where he will be the long-term successor to Samir Handanovic in goal.
The Cameroonian is currently representing his country at the African Cup of Nations, and he is also available to play for the Dutch champions once again.
Inter fans will be watching the Cameroonian’s form, especially given the long layoff that he had through suspension, and they will be happy to hear that he has hardly lost a step.
“Everyone was waiting for the result of my weigh-in, but when I got on the scale I discovered that I had lost weight,” he stated.
“Then the coach said to me, Andre, you’ve been away for nine months and came back stronger, what happened? That suspension must have done you some good,” he added.
