Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana apparently left the World Cup on Tuesday and was heading home after being dropped from the country’s squad for disciplinary reasons.
A photo posted by a Cameroonian journalist on social media showed the Inter Milan goalkeeper at the airport in Doha and about to leave Qatar. The Cameroon team spokesman did not immediately answer calls seeking comment.
Onana also released a statement on Tuesday referring to his dispute with Cameroon coach Rigobert Song over team tactics that led to him being dropped for Cameroon’s 3-3 draw with Serbia on Monday and suspended from the team.
Onana said he had tried to resolve the issues.
“I have put all my efforts and energy into finding solutions to a situation that a footballer often experiences, but there has been no will on the other side,” Onana said. “Some moments are difficult to assimilate.”
