World Cup: Cameroon gives statement over Andre Onana departure.

In an official announcement, Cameroon confirmed that Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana had been suspended owing to a disciplinary matter before his departure from the World Cup.

Onana played the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Switzerland and had been expected to feature on Monday against Serbia, only for numerous reports to claim that the Inter stopper had been banished from the squad.

According to some reports, Onana’s dismissal was the result of a disagreement over tactics, since Cameroon manager Rigobert Song was claimed to favor a “more traditional” approach to goalkeeping.

“The Cameroon Football Federation hereby informs the public that following Mr. Rigobert Song Bahanag’s decision, Head Coach of the Indomitable Lions, the player Andre Onana has been temporarily suspended from the group for disciplinary reasons,” a statement read.

“The Cameroon Football Federation reiterates its full support to the Head Coach and his entire staff as they implement the Federation’s policy aimed at preserving discipline, solidarity, complementarity and cohesion within the national team.
