Powerless like his teammates, André Onana saw Manchester United beaten by Tottenham (0-2) on Saturday in the Premier League. A stinging defeat commented on by the Cameroonian goalkeeper who invited the Red Devils to be more decisive in front of goal.
Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the season this weekend. Receiving Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday in the Premier League, the Red Devils lost 2-0. Not very incisive in front of the opposing goals, the foals of Erik ten Hag let the Spurs unwind on achievements from the Senegalese Pape Matar Sarr (49′) and a goal from Lisandro Martinez (83′) against his camp.
A scathing defeat which made André Onana react at the end of the meeting. Author of an interesting performance especially in his kicking game, the Cameroonian goalkeeper believes that his people should have taken the three points of victory.
” I don’t think they were better than us. We made a few mistakes in the second half but, as we know, football doesn’t last in just one period. I think we started the game very well.” he admitted to the microphone of Sky Sport.
Before continuing: “Of course, we didn’t score but I think it was a key point for us. If we had scored in the first half, the game would have been different, for sure. In football, it’s all about scoring goals, especially against good opponents. We had big chances and we didn’t score so in the end you have to pay for it but you also have to stay calm, keep working. And, if we continue like this, at the end of the season, everything will be fine.”
