André Onana explains his choice for Inter over Lyon
Announced with insistence on the side of Olympique Lyonnais in 2021, André Onana will finally join Inter Milan. The Cameroonian goalkeeper explained his choice to the microphone of Bein Sport. “It was not easy to say no to Lyon. I spoke with the president Aulas. But I could not choose Lyon and leave Inter. I think that Inter is a step above Lyon (…). With Inter, I think I will have more opportunities to win the Champions League and major trophies. For my career and my ambitions, it was important to come to Italy. They have a better training for goalkeepers. I made the right choice,” said the former Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper.
The player also revealed his exchanges with Karl Toko-Ekambi, the Lyon player at the time, who pushed him to join them. “All the time he told me ‘it’s you we’re waiting for’. He put pressure on me (laughs). Everyone follows their own path, and it was important for me to join Inter,” says the Cameroonian. This season, Inter is in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and 4th in the Serie A standings. Unlike Lyon, which is struggling in the league.
