Former Arsenal and Manchester City striker, Emmanuel Adebayor feels Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana did not respect Cameroon.

Adebayor also insisted that Onana ‘alienated’ his international teammates and African supporters at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

This comes after Onana watched Cameroon’s AFCON 1-1 draw with Guinea from the sidelines earlier this week after linking up late with his national team.

The former Inter Milan star has faced criticism over the decision, with former Cameroon star, Sebastien Bassong accusing him of ‘disrespecting’ his country.

Speaking about the development, Adebayor told Sport News Africa: ” He [Andre Onana] did not respect Cameroon.

“I was a player like him, and even being the most important player in my selection, I never acted in this way [arriving on the day of the match].

“The fact that this situation is happening shows that there is a problem, perhaps even within the federation.

“He risks losing big, because he has alienated the Cameroonian supporters, as well as many African supporters and undoubtedly certain members of the team.”
