Onana laments poor start as Man Utd crisis deepens

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana said he had let his team­mates down after a howler set the tone for a 4-3 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.


A third consecutive defeat ramps up the pressure on United manager Erik ten Hag and two late goals from Casemiro masked the gulf in class be­tween the sides at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.


However, United had started brightly until Leroy Sane’s strike slipped through Onana’s grasp on 28 minutes.


“After my mistake we lost control of the game. It’s a difficult situation for us, for me especially because I’m the one who let the team down,” Onana told TNT Sports.


The Cameroonian starred for In­ter Milan on their run to last season’s Champions League final, but has strug­gled in the early weeks of his United career since joining in a £47 million ($58 million) move.


The Red Devils have now conceded three or more goals in three consecu­tive games for the first time since 1978.


“My start in Manchester is not so good, it’s not how I want (to play),” added Onana.


“Today is one of my worst games and it is difficult because we have big ambition, we want to win everything - it was a big opportunity for us to bounce back after the situation we are facing. — AFP
