Onana, the Ajax goalkeeper, reinfected with coronavirus

It remains to be seen if it affects the ownership of the goalkeeper in Ajax's first game in the Champions League, next October 21 against Liverpool at the Johan Cruyff Arena.


The Cameroonian international André Onana, who passed COVID-19 in early August, has tested positive for coronavirus again and is low for the friendly that plays this Friday against Japan in the city of Utrecht, the federation of his country reported today.

Midfielder Pierre Kundé has also tested positive and has quarantined Moumi Ngamaleu and Moumi Ngamaleu, federation doctor William Ngatchou said at a press appearance. The two infections had to occur during the Cameroon rally in the Netherlands "because all the soccer players arrived here with negative PCRs" last Monday, the doctor explained. With the losses of the four players, Cameroon will only have 17 troops for tomorrow's friendly against Japan.

It remains to be seen whether the reinfection affects the goalkeeper's ownership in Ajax's first Champions League game, which faces Liverpool on 21 October at the Johan Cruyff Arena. From the Amsterdam club the news has been received with surprise, as the goalkeeper was one of the thirteen affected in the COVID-19 outbreak that the club suffered in early August, reported the most widely read newspaper in the Netherlands, "De Telegraaf ".

Ajax had forbidden their other African players -Noussair Mazraoui, Zakaria Labyad, Mohammed Kudus and Lassina Traoré- to concentrate with their respective teams because it would have entailed traveling to countries with a high rate of contagion and, therefore, they would have to do quarantine afterwards . However, Onana received the green light because the Cameroon rally is taking place in the Dutch city of Utrecht.
