Manchester United goalkeeper André Onana said on Tuesday that replacing David de Gea in the Manchester goalkeepers “is not something easy”.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich, the 24-year-old Cameroonian made the confession, adding that he was confident in his team’s performance for the rest of the season.
Onana has conceded 10 goals in five Premier League matches this season. He joined United on a five-year deal worth £47.2 million, until 2028. “ Well, I am a very passionate player and I demand a lot from my players and my defenders”he confided.
“ But like I’ve always said, we’re in this together. Being part of this great club is something great. Manchester United is an incredible club, it’s huge. I’m happy to be here. Replacing David is not something easy. I try to do my best of course”he assured.
“ The start of the season is not what we want but we think that better will come. The situation will change and I am very confident. I know everything will be okay”, concluded the Indomitable Lion. As a reminder, the former Inter Milan player replaced the Spanish goalkeeper, David de Gea, at the beginning of July, who left Old Trafford after twelve years of good and loyal service with the Red Devils.
