Early Life and Education
Andre Onana, born in April 2, 1996, Nkol Ngok, Onana was from a struggling home in the heart of Cameroon in which his parents found it hard but ensured they were able to earn ends meet whilst raising him. Despite the low state, Onana attained his basic education in his home town with his interest also in football.

He joined Manchester United in the summer of 2023 after his scintillating spell at Inter Milan with an outstanding final when he faced Pep Guardiola’s side in the 2023 UEFA Champions league final, but has since not been able to replicate such form at Manchester United.
