Andre Onana’s style is one that’s set to revolutionise Manchester United, and he has explained that he thinks he deserves the move to Erik ten Hag’s squad.

André Onana recently sealed his £43 million move to Manchester United, having signed once again for Erik ten Hag.

It’s a move that has seen the club go from one style of goalkeeper in David de Gea to the complete opposite in Onana, with De Gea leaving the club after 12 years in goal.

Onana is likely to make his debut in the coming week, with the club playing Wrexham, Real Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund in the USA.

“I’m very comfortable playing from the back, but it depends,” Onana told club media when asked about his play style.

“I think the most important thing is to recognise the situation and that’s what I do myself, read the situation, especially what the team needs in certain moments.

“When we play, depending on who we play, sometimes you have the possession and sometimes not, so from there, you have to be smart and try to help the team because most of the time playing with these players is amazing.

“I had my first training session with them and it’s just amazing the quality here, it’s great.

“I think a lot of the time we will have possession. Sometimes I have to play higher and sometimes I have to drop.

“It’s just the moments and you have to recognise those moments and from there on, we look forward. “But I look at myself as a modern goalkeeper, so I can adapt to any situation.”

Speaking further, Onana also explained that he feels he deserves the move to Old Trafford, with the keeper set to enter the peak years of his career while at the club.

“It’s not like everyone has the opportunity to play at United,” he said.

“For me, if you’re at this big club then you’re already one of the best in the world, so you just have to demonstrate that next month when the competition [Premier League] starts and I think I deserve it, I deserve a lot of things and I’m very happy for what we have done.

“The clean sheets were not only by myself: of course my team-mates, the defenders and the strikers, because the first defender would be my strikers. Also my goalkeeper coach.

“We work every day to keep the clean sheet at the weekend so, for me, it’s great.”
