Indomitable lions: Onana reveals the real reasons why Seedorf was dismissed

In an interview with Canal + journalist Malick Traoré and broadcast on twitter, the Cameroonian goalkeeper spoke about his competition with Fabrice Ondoa in the national team, his future in the club and the departure of Clarence Seedorf, former coach of the indomitable lions.

The porter of 24 brandishes the working methods of the Dutch technician. For him, the physical load he imposed, quickly annoyed the entire workforce. 

"He's a close coach to the players, but Clarence is really tough on the man. It was sometimes difficult for us: 2 training sessions per day. You had players who did a whole season, they come back to preseason and find themselves training twice a day. At the beginning, it's good, but at the end, it becomes a bit complicated, "confided the last bulwark of Ajax Amsterdam to the microphone of Canal + Sport Afrique. 

"But basically everything was fine, when there is victory, everyone is happy. It’s when the boat is pitching that you start to see the true face of people, ”he added.

André Onana also spoke about his rivalry with his cousin Fabrice Ondoa in the national selection. He believes in this sense, that he deserves the place of holder to the position of goalkeeper. 

“Whether it is with Hugo Bross, whether it is Clarence Seedorf or Conceiçao, I think I deserve my place as holder. I will not say that it was Clarence who imposed me as number 1, he did not take me to the neighborhood to put me number 1. I think I deserved this place, "he noted. as we wrote previously.
