During a press conference leading up to Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich, Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana said that replacing the former goalkeeper, David de Gea, “is not something easy.” The 24-year-old Cameroonian acknowledged the difficulty of this transition but conveyed his confidence in his team’s performance for the rest of the season.
In the Premier League this season, Onana has conceded 10 goals in five matches. He recently signed a five-year contract with Manchester United, which is valued at £47.2 million and runs until 2028.
Onana, known for his passion and high expectations of both himself and his defenders, emphasized the unity within the team and the privilege of being a part of such a prestigious club like Manchester United. He acknowledged the formidable challenge of stepping into the shoes of David de Gea but expressed his commitment to giving his best.
Despite a less than ideal start to the season, Onana remained optimistic about the team’s future, believing that better results are on the horizon. He conveyed his confidence that the situation will improve, emphasizing his belief that everything will eventually work out.
Onana is set to make his UEFA Champions League debut for Manchester United against Bayern Munich, marking a significant moment in his career, particularly after his former club, Inter Milan, lost to Manchester City in last season’s final.
Onana has garnered considerable attention as a suitable successor to the retired former goalkeeper, David de Gea, who concluded his 12-year tenure with Manchester United in early July.
