πŸ‡¨πŸ‡² Andre Onana downplays rivalry with Fabrice Ondoa at Indomitable Lions

André Onana has sought to downplay rivalry between him and Fabrice Ondoa as they both jostle to be Cameroon's number one goalkeeper. 

Onana plays for Ajax Amsterdam while Ondoa turns out for Belgian side KV Oostende. The pair have always given Cameroon national team coaches a headache on who starts ahead of the other. 

Speculations have swirled suggesting that the two are locked in a vicious battle to be the country's undisputed number one. But Onana has clarified that there is mutual respect between them.

“Fabrice helped me a lot when I joined Barcelona as he had arrived a year earlier. We have a very good relationship. He is like my older brother and I give him the respect he deserves at the national team.  We are in competition but we remain a family," he told a Cameroonian radio station. 

Onana and Ondoa are cousins and both came through Barcelona's academy before moving on to other clubs. 

However, Onana has been heavily linked with a return to Camp Nou and has suggested that he might leave the Dutch club in the summer transfer window.
