Author of a big blunder at the start of the match, André Onana reacted to Manchester United’s defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, beaten by Bayern (3-4). And the Cameroonian goalkeeper takes responsibility for this failure.
Flamboyant last season with Inter Milan, who notably reached the final of the Champions League, André Onana is struggling to reproduce the same copy during this exercise. Feverish in his cages, the Manchester United goalkeeper, recruited this summer to replace David de Gea, concedes goals like peanuts. In six games played with the Red Devils, the Cameroonian picked up the ball in his net 14 times.
The latest is his big blunder which partly precipitated the defeat of his team on Wednesday evening, beaten by Bayern Munich in the Champions League (3-4). Visibly overwhelmed by the challenge or perhaps too sure of himself, the Indomitable Lion made many mistakes, but still redeemed himself in the second half of the game.
After the match which relegated Manchester United to last place in Group A, André Onana spoke to CBS. The former Inter Milan player admitted that his mistake completely changed the face of the match. “It’s hard to lose this way. We started well but after my mistake we lost control of the match. It was me who let the team down,” declared André Onana, before making his mea-culpa, “The team was good, we didn’t win this game because of me. »
Erik Ten Hag defends Onana
Present at a press conference after the match, the Manchester United coach defended his goalkeeper, guilty of the first Bavarian goal. “It’s a team question, mistakes are made but you have to bounce back as a team. We must believe that we can always bounce back. If you stay in the game and fight, you can come back.”said Ten Hag, before continuing, “If a player makes a mistake, it’s over, it’s over. we have to believe, as a team, that we can always bounce back. Tonight we showed it. »
André Onana’s terrible stat
Words which should reassure the Cameroonian whose position in the Mancunian cages is not in danger. But it will be necessary for the native of Nkol Ngok to really wake up before it is too late. According to Marca, the 27-year-old has conceded 10 goals from 13 shots on target by his opponents at the start of the season. A terrible statistic from the Cameroonian which is far from good performances.
