Inter-Bound Goalkeeper Andre Onana: “Been A Tough Year But Getting Back To My Best, Don’t Care If Ajax Fans Boo Me”

Inter-bound goalkeeper Andre Onana is aware that he hasn’t had the easiest time getting back to his best form, but feels that he is nevertheless on track.

Speaking to Dutch broadcaster ESPN after Ajax’s 2-1 win over Sparta Rotterdam yesterday, the 25-year-old responded to the boos from some Ajax supporters and reflected on his progress.

Onana will join Inter on a free transfer during the summer transfer window, with the Cameroonian having been identified as the designated long-term successor to Samir Handanovic in goal.

He will not arrive in the best of form, however, with the keeper not having been at his consistent best since returning from a one-year doping suspension last November.

The doping ban was a major setback for Onana, whilst some high-profile errors and a fractured relationship with Ajax fans have also made it a tough season for him, but the Cameroonian feels that he can get back to his best form.

“A lot has happened, it has been a tough year for me,” he said. “I am back to play and I am very happy to be back and to play.”

“I’m playing and I’m not at all worried about reaching the top five or top ten for goalkeepers in the world,” he went on. “I know I’ll be back to my level, I’m sure of that.”

“Now I’m not in my best shape, I haven’t played in a very long time,” he admitted.

“I know, people can say what they want,” Onana continued. “If I’m angry, it’s their problem. It’s not my problem. I take criticism from my coaches but otherwise, the fans can sing, they can whistle, they can cry, I don’t give a sh*t.”

The Cameroonian reflected that “That’s how I became who I am now, not listening to what people say while I play. It’s my life, let me write my story. They want to boo me? No problem, I will love the Ajax fans anyway.”
