Why Onana Must Not Join Arsenal – Sneijder


Former Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has advised Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana to join Real Madrid or Barcelona rather than Arsenal.

The 37-year-old believes the Gunners have dipped in form in recent years, having last played in the Champions League in the 2016-17 season.


In the recently-concluded 2020-21 season, Arsenal finished eighth on the Premier League table, thus, failing to qualify for any European competition.

“I expect him to leave. I think he is a great goalkeeper. European top? Yes, certainly,” Sneijder told Voetbal International Live.

“I’d rather not see him at Arsenal. It’s a fantastic club, but it has slipped in recent years. I’d rather see him play at Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.”

Sneijder also believed the suspension of the Cameroon international should have been reduced to six months by the apex court.

“I think it’s nonsense, If you can reduce such a sentence by three months, why not by six months?” he continued.
