This recognition comes on the heels of Onana’s outstanding performances with Inter Milan during the previous season.
Onana’s exceptional goalkeeping skills with Inter Milan have earned him a well-deserved spot among the nominees, showcasing his talent and commitment to the sport. The Manchester United goalkeeper now shares the spotlight with three other African football giants: Yassine Bounou of Morocco, Victor Osimhen of Nigeria, and Mohamed Salah of Egypt.
This nomination is not only a personal achievement for Onana but also a source of pride for Cameroonian football. His success on the international stage serves as an inspiration to aspiring footballers across Africa, highlighting the immense potential of African players at the highest level.
The Global Soccer Award, an annual event in Dubai, is a platform that acknowledges and celebrates excellence in the football world. Onana’s nomination places him among the elite in the sport and underscores his significant contribution to football.
As the competition for Best Player of the Year 2023 heats up, Onana is undoubtedly aiming to add this coveted award to his growing collection of accolades. His nomination is a testament to his unyielding commitment to excellence and unwavering passion for the game.
Having received recent international recognition, including a Ballon d’Or nomination for Best Goalkeeper and a nomination for the CAF awards, Onana’s star continues to rise. In the goalkeeper category, he competes alongside notable names such as Bounou, Courtois, Donnarumma, Costa, Enderson, Maignan, Ramsdale, Ter Stegen, and Sommer.
The anticipation builds for the Globe Soccer Awards scheduled on January 19, 2024, in Dubai, where football luminaries like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are also nominated, promising an eventful celebration of the sport’s finest.
