André Onana, a Cameroonian goalkeeper, has claimed responsibility for Manchester United’s defeat at Bayern Munich, while admitting his start at Old Trafford has been “not so good.”
When Onana let Leroy Sané’s tame effort slip under his body, he gave Bayern the lead in the Allianz Arena. Erik ten Hag’s side eventually lost 4-3, making it three straight defeats.
We started very well and after my mistake we lost control of the game,” Onana said.
It’s a difficult situation for me, I let the team down. It’s because of me we didn’t win this game. We have to move on, it’s the life of the goalkeeper, he added.
Following his £47 million summer transfer from Inter Milan, Onana has had a difficult start to life at United.
The Cameroonian goalkeeper has already been blamed for goals against Nottingham Forest, Arsenal, and Brighton, and he admitted on the eve of the game against Bayern that replacing David de Gea “is not something easy.”
