Buffon includes Onana among top 5 goalkeeper in the world
Juventus legend Gigi Buffon has included Inter Milan’s Andre Onana among the top five goalkeepers in the world.
Buffon also included AC Milan’s Mike Maignan on the list.
Speaking to Sky Italia, Buffon said, “Maignan is no surprise; he had already clearly demonstrated what he was able to do last year.
“Onana inserted himself convincingly; he showed personality and broad shoulders to hold up a team like Inter and (Samir) Handanovic as a competitor.
“On the field, they deserved to be considered in the circle of the top 5 goalkeepers in the world, and I don’t think I’m giving them anything by saying this.”
Onana recently helped Inter Milan qualify for the Champions League final after putting in an impressive display against AC Milan.
The Cameroonian will hope to lead Inter to victory when they face Manchester City in the Champions League final in June.
