In a thrilling encounter between Bayern Munich and Manchester United that ended 4-3 in favor of the German side, goalkeeper Andre Onana shouldered much of the blame for the loss. Onana candidly admitted, “I lost because of me. I will learn from this mistake. Manchester United understands that my openings are not pretty yet. I also admit that I still need to improve a lot. Today, I was the one who pulled the team down.”

Former United legend Rio Ferdinand, while acknowledging Onana’s ball-playing abilities, emphasized the importance of goalkeeping skills, saying, “He (Onana) plays the ball very well. But since he is a goalkeeper, he needs to show some goal-catching skills as well. That’s why he was called by Man United.”
