Andre Onana, goalkeeper for Manchester United, assesses the team’s performance candidly after an obvious mistake handed the Champions League title to Bayern Munich.
Andre Onana took responsibility for his miscalculation, which ultimately led to Bayern Munich’s victory on Wednesday in the Champions League.The Allianz Arena match between Erik ten Hag’s side and Bayern Munich was off to a fantastic start until the Cameroonian made a terrible mistake. Leroy Sane took a long-range shot at Onana right before the half-hour mark. The game’s momentum turned, however, when the goalie botched his lines and could only deflect the ball into his own net. Serge Gnabry added a second goal shortly afterward to put Bayern in complete control of the match just before halftime.
Harry Kane and teenage striker Mathys Tel added goals to the scoreline in the second half to record a 4-3 triumph for the Spurs over the Red Devils, despite an early second-half goal from Rasmus Hojlund and two late goals from Casemiro.
The goalie was devastated because he knew his error had lost United a win.I’m to blame for the team’s failure. He told TNT Sports, “The team was good, but I think it was because of me that we didn’t win the game.”
The life of a goalkeeper is like this. That was the main idea. I need to grow from this experience and persevere. It’s up to me to prove a number of things. My time so far in Manchester has not gone as planned. Probably my worst performance ever. It’s a rough patch, for sure.The goalkeeper is under a lot of criticism after completing a big money transfer to Old Trafford from Inter in the summer and allowing 14 goals in six outings. He has made several costly mistakes, and this one will just bring more attention to him.When United face Burnley this Saturday in the Premier League, Onana will be looking to make amends.
