Erik ten Hag is confident that Andre Onana will recover from the mistake that he made in the goalkeeping position during Manchester United’s loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The poor shot that Leroy Sane took in the 28th minute was allowed to go in by Onana, giving Bayern Munich a 1-0 lead, and United gave up another goal four minutes later.
Despite the fact that United cut United’s lead three times in the second half, they were ultimately victorious by a score of 4-3; this was United’s third consecutive loss and their fourth loss in the past five.
After the game, Onana made a request to speak to the people who owned the rights, and he acknowledged his mistake and took responsibility for it. Ten Hag gave an assurance that the other United players would back the signing of the player for 47.2 million pounds.
“I think he shows that he takes the responsibility and shows personality and the personality that he needs to get in high levels,” said Ten Hag. “I think he shows that he takes the responsibility.” “However, that is not only about him; I believe that it is also about the performance of the squad.
Therefore, it is imperative that we show him our support and assistance out on the field. However, this does not simply count for Andre; rather, it counts for every player that is currently on the field. They need to realize that they are only 11, that they are all in the same position, and that they all need to be on the same page in order to achieve success.
When it comes to sports, blunders are unavoidable; yet, you shouldn’t blow things out of proportion. As I’ve already mentioned, it wasn’t only Andre working toward that objective; it was also after that.
“He showed his capabilities in the second half, and he will bounce back for us; he is an important player,” we said about him after the game. “He made great saves for us in the second half.”
United have given up a total of 14 goals in their previous six matches, and Onana has let in goals despite having saveable shots on goal in both their win against Nottingham Forest a month ago and their loss to Brighton a week ago.
“It’s difficult,” the 27-year-old athlete said in an interview with TNT Sports. We got off to a great start, but then I made a mistake, and after that, we lost control of the game. It’s a challenging scenario for me, and I feel bad that I’ve let the team down. I am to blame for the fact that we did not win this game.
The life of the goalie is never easy, but we have no choice but to move on. They had not produced any opportunities; however, on their first attempt to hit the target, I made a mistake, and as a result, we lost. We fought until the very end, but I have to acknowledge that the outcome is not a reflection of my contributions.
“There is still a lot for me to prove (to the fans of United),” I said. My beginning has not gone as planned, nor has it been very successful. It’s not an easy task. It was an opportunity to get back on your feet, and certainly, this is a horrible, tough time for us, and we need to stick together and learn from our mistakes.
