The rise, fall and rise again of Inter Milans Andre Onana
From goalkeeper of the year to out for a year. From elite to exile, from No.1 to drugs ban, from sought-after to released on a free.
And all the way back again.
Andre Onana is bidding to hit the pinnacle of the sport and become a European champion, 855 days on from first being handed a ban for a doping violation. Its a journey which would make some shrink from the challenge or play havoc with their mindset, yet setbacks - which feels too understated of a word - seem part and parcel of the Cameroonians career.
Indeed, its less that Onanas story is one of a rise-fall-rise, and more of a non-stop, chaotic rollercoaster which travels an upward trajectory even as the stomach still feels like its heading the opposite direction.
And all of this is even before he gets to attempt stopping Erling Haaland and co.
For starters, the many months spent not being allowed to train or play with Ajax wasnt the first time he had suffered such a fate.
Back after he joined his first club in Europe, Barcelona, Onana was one of the group of youngsters unable to play after the Spanish club were found to have breached recruitment laws, effectively banning him until 18 years of age. Coming back from that and then seeing Marc-Andre ter Stegen signed meant an exit was a certainty if he wanted first-team football.
