“If I could go back in time” – ex-Man Utd player regrets Erik ten Hag’s summer decision



| Last Updated:


The topic of Manchester United re-signing David de Gea after Andrè Onana’s start has been circulating social media of late.

Andrè Onana‘s start to life at Manchester United has been poor – he has conceded 18 goals in his first 10 games for the club.

This, of course, is not purely down to him; defensive errors and injuries have sent the squad into turmoil, with a lack of consistency and rhythm hurting Erik ten Hag‘s squad across all aspects of the pitch.

Onana’s £45 million move from Inter Milan was met with criticism, as those loyal to Ten Hag’s former goalkeeper David de Gea feel that Ten Hag’s decision to release him from his contract was not the correct call.

Former United defender Paul Parker is one who holds this belief, claiming that the club should not have let De Gea go on a free at the end of June last summer in order to sign Onana.

“I have no idea what they were thinking when they went out and got him,” Parker said of Onana to BettingExpert. “David De Gea earned the right to get his high wage, but this is not about the money. It’s about having a proper goalkeeper.

“I don’t think it’s a lost cause to get David De Gea back, but I think he is so disappointed with the way he was treated by the club and the fans.

“Personally, as I’ve said a thousand times, if I could go back in time, I would have kept him. Of course, I would.

“But I don’t think I would want him to come back because everyone would want him to fail, and the fans would call him out every time he does something wrong in their opinion.

“I think it could ruin his legacy, but it’s a shame because I would love to have him in the team.”
