“We have to be together” — Andre Onana after Bayern defeat



"We have to be together" -- Andre Onana after Bayern defeat

Facing Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena came too soon for Manchester United and for Andre Onana, it was something he considers as the worst game he has ever played.

In a candid post-match interview following Manchester United’s crushing defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, goalkeeper Andre Onana openly acknowledged his pivotal role in the team’s 4-3 loss at the Allianz Arena.

Andre Onana recently joined the club from Inter Milan for a hefty £47.2 million during the summer transfer window, committed a critical error by failing to stop Leroy Sane’s long-range strike, which allowed Bayern Munich to take the lead.

Despite the disappointment, Onana exhibited remarkable accountability and courage by speaking to TNT Sports immediately after the game, and he even sought an interview with CBS Sports to provide further insights into what had transpired.

During his conversation with TNT Sports, Onana shouldered the blame, saying,

“After my mistake, we lost control of the game – I’m the one who let the team down. The team was good, but we didn’t win this game because of me. My start in Manchester is not so good.

“Today is one of my worst games. It was a big opportunity for us to bounce back from the pressure we’re facing, but it’s tough. We have to be together.”

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand praised Onana’s character for his forthrightness, stating,

“I respect that. I’ve lost games and made mistakes and refused to speak to the media at times. That showed good character and showed he’s made of the right stuff.”

On CBS Sports, football legend Peter Schmeichel disclosed, “Andre Onana has actually asked to speak to us… He wants to explain what happened.”

Onana’s recent performances have raised concerns, with the Cameroonian goalkeeper conceding 10 goals in his last three games across all competitions, including a combined six goals against Arsenal and Brighton.
