Andre Onana, 24, has for the second time denied that compatriot Idris Carlos Kameni is not the ideal goalie for him to follow his footsteps.
Talking to samedi sport, headliner – Onana, who happens to be one the hottest property’s in football, dropped what many have considered as an ‘uppercut’ on Idris Carlos Kameni.
‘As per me, from his experience and career Kameni is Cameroon’s all time best goalkeeper, but he is not an example for me.’ Onana told Cameditsport.com.
Over a fortnight and a half ago, precisely April 15, Onana said the following when quizzed of who his models were: ‘thomas Nkono? I didn’t see him play. My models are Van der Saar, Ilker Casillas and Victor Valdes. That’s all. Carlos Kameni is not an example for me,”concluded the Ajax Amsterdam man.
The lad could be forgiven at the first instance, with many around feeling it was just poor communication skills. This time, Onana might have just further talked himself into trouble.
Despite Kameni and Onana coming from two separate generations, they both made Cameroon’s trinity of goalies alongside Ondoa at the 2019 AFCON.
36-year-old Kameni is yet to reply to Onana’s statement but he is one of the legend’s of the ‘beautiful game’ on the continent having won one AFCON title (2002,) 1 Olympic gold medal (2000,) one Confederation Cup silver medal (2003) and one AFCON silver medal (2008.)
Kameni accumulated over 73 caps for the indomitable Lions.
