Onana is back in training for Ajax today, it’s unclear if he will regain his starting role as Ajax’s number one.

“Life has taught me that it doesn’t matter what others think. The important thing is to value what you are, what you do, and what you feel. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger. I’M BACK” Andre Onana wrote following his return to training.

Onana has a year let left on his contract and he will be able to leave as a free agent if Ajax did not offer him a new contract.

“We have now moved on without him and have recruited two keepers during his suspension. “Both an experienced and a talented one, the latter being one with an eye on the future. “The team has already started the season and is in the process of teambuilding.” – Ajax said about Onana’s future.
