Erik ten Hag backs Man Utd star to respond
20 October 2023 – 21:08
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has backed goalkeeper Andre Onana to turnaround his fortunes at the club.
The Cameroonian replaced David de Gea as United’s number one shot-stopper in the summer, but he has yet to live up to the expectations.
He has been poor with his handling between the sticks and has already been the subject of criticism from fans and pundits.
Speaking in today’s press conference, Ten Hag acknowledged that Onana needs to step up but also spoke in support of him.
He talked about the qualities of the 27-year-old, who recently helped Inter Milan reach the final of the Champions League.
It remains to be seen whether Onana will repay the manager’s faith with a string of good performances for the Red Devils.
Onana is one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in the world, but he has looked nervous in goal since making his debut.
The Cameroonian needs to find more composure between the sticks and should go back to basics to recapture his form.
