Andrè Onana was chosen as Erik ten Hag’s replacement for David de Gea at Manchester United during the latest summer transfer window.
Erik ten Hag brought Onana into the club in order to help progress his team’s style of play alongside Lisandro Martínez and Raphaël Varane.
With Onana replacing De Gea after the Spaniard had 12 years at the club, this represented a huge change to the squad – and one that Bruno Fernandes has commented on.
“Obviously, if someone has picked Andre to come in and be the goalkeeper of Manchester United then he has to be a big personality,” Fernandes said to club media.
“In the past, this club didn’t have many goalkeepers because David was here 12 years, before that Edwin [van der Sar].
“If he’s now here and playing that position, it’s because he brings something to the team. He has qualities coming out from the back but he’s also good at stopping shots so that’s what we can expect from him.”
Onana is expected to play for Cameroon on Tuesday evening as they face Burundi in their final AFCON qualifying fixture.
