André Onana issues rallying cry at Man United teammates after Brentford heroics



| Last Updated:


André Onana was one of the few Manchester United players who can hold his head high following the Premier League draw against Brentford.

It has not gone under the radar that Manchester United conceded a total of 31 shots against Brentford on Saturday night during their 1-1 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Despite Mason Mount‘s 90+6th minute goal, United failed to keep a clean sheet in the dying moments, with Kristoffer Ajer slamming home an equaliser three minutes later at the ground where Erik ten Hag‘s men lost 4-0 last campaign.

The only reason United did not concede three or four goals was André Onana’s brilliance. He has issued a rallying cry to his team-mates that they must win every game from now until the end of the season.

“I feel sad. I feel sad because we are Manchester United, so it doesn’t matter against who we play. Everywhere we go, we have to win,” Onana told MUTV.

“We must win, no? And we gave away this game in the end. We did a fantastic job defending. It was not our best game, but the most important thing for us was to win. So, yeah, it’s difficult.”

Onana made some great saves against Brentford, but he dismissed the praise at full-time, claiming that it only matters if the team win.

“Well, the most important thing is the victory of the team, you know,” he said. “And it’s good when you contribute, and you have a victory in the end, you know.

“Of course, we didn’t lose this game, but the way we concede that goal is painful for all of us, you know because we end this together, we block short, we make safe together, so it’s difficult.”

He continued, explaining that the side must bounce back after the disappointing draw and performance: “We are used to, we are used to this already, you know. We, as leaders, as experienced players, have to take responsibility.

“I start with myself and always stay positive because we are the biggest club in the country. We have to continue working hard, be humble, and I know if we stay together like we did the last month, I hope we end in the top four”
