Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has leaped to the defence of goalkeeper Andre Onana, following the Red Devils’ 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.
Onana became the talk of football yet again this week when a handling error gifted Bayern a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute at the Allianz Arena.
In the post-match interviews, Onana boldly took the blame for his side’s loss, however Ten Hag came out and mentioned that the team’s performance should be highlighted.
“I think he shows that he takes the responsibility and shows personality and the personality he needs to get in high levels,” Ten Hag said after the match, as per Manchester Evening News.
“But that’s not only about him but I think it’s about the team’s performance.
“So we have to support him on the pitch, we have to help him. but it doesn’t only count for Andre, it counts for all the players on the pitch. They have to understand they are 11, they are in the same boat and they have to be on the same page to get results.”
