“Harsh on himself” – Andrè Onana praised for Manchester United interview by teammate



| Last Updated:


Andrè Onana has been praised by his Manchester United teammate Jonny Evans for his interview after the Bayern Munich Champions League defeat.

Andrè Onana was heavily criticised for a mistake he made for Bayern Munich‘s first goal in their 4-3 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday evening.

Onana let the ball slip past him and into the net for the opening goal of the game, and the Erik ten Hag signing asked to speak to the media after the game to declare the loss his fault due to his error.

“Because of me we didn’t win but we just have to move on. This is the life of the goalkeeper,” Onana explained after the game.

Jonny Evans, his teammate, has spoken about the brave decision that Onana took after the tie, explaining that it was a “big thing” to take that action.

“It’s a big thing for him to do that,” Evans told TNT Sports. “He didn’t have to do that. But I think it’s very difficult for any player coming to a new club to hit the ground running and maybe he’s been a bit harsh on himself.

“I’ve seen that quite a lot. And I’ve experienced that myself.

“He’s replacing David de Gea, who was here for a long time. Again, remember, David at the start of his career at Manchester United, maybe went through a bit of a tough time to settle in and we saw what sort of career he would go on to have for this club.”
