Dutch legendary footballer, Wesley Sneijder has urged Ajax Keeper, Andre Onana not to join Arsenal, stating that the club has slipped in recent years and the goalkeeper should be playing for a European giant. Wesley Sneijder Urges Andre Onana Not To Join Arsenal.
The Cameroonian international is said to leave Ajax this summer, having just one year left on his current contract. He has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in a bargain deal.
Due to his doping ban, the shot-stopper is ineligible to train or play until November when the 1-year ban which has now been reduced to 9 months will come to an end. Arsenal could however sign Onana for around £5million, but Sneijder thinks that would be a bad move for his career. He believes a move to one of Spain’s big two; Real Madrid or Barcelona would be a great decision.
‘I expect him to leave. I think he is a great goalkeeper. One of the top in Europe? Yes, certainly. I’d rather not see him at Arsenal. It’s a great club, but they have slipped in recent years. I’d rather see him play at Real Madrid or Barcelona,’Sneijder told Veotbal International Live on Friday.
Sneijder however thinks the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS)’s decision to reduce Onana’s 1-year ban to 9 months is total nonsense and to him, CAS is actually admitting they made a mistake with the original ban.
‘I think it’s nonsense. If you can reduce such a sentence by three months, why not by six months? Let the boy start preparing. He has already had his sentence, right? He has missed half a year, it is fine, right? If you reduce it, you are actually admitting you have made a mistake [with the original ban],’ Sneijder added.
