Andre Onana, the Cameroonian goalkeeper, endured a nightmarish outing during Manchester United‘s UEFA Champions League Group A opener against Bayern Munich. His early mistake proved to be the catalyst for a 4-3 defeat, extending United’s losing streak to three consecutive matches.
The former Ajax goalkeeper was left dejected and shattered after failing to secure Leroy Sane’s shot for the opening goal. However, in heartening images shared on social media, teammate Sergio Reguilon swiftly offered words of encouragement to Onana, urging him to stay strong throughout the game.
Unfortunately, Onana’s struggles persisted as he conceded another goal just four minutes after his initial mistake, with Serge Gnabry doubling Bayern’s lead before halftime.
In the second half, Rasmus Hojlund scored his debut goal for Manchester United, reducing the deficit. However, Harry Kane promptly responded from the penalty spot, restoring Bayern’s two-goal advantage.
However, in photos shared on social media, teammate Sergio Reguilon was quick to encourage Onana while urging the goalkeeper to remain strong for the game.
The match witnessed a dramatic conclusion as Casemiro scored a brace to give United hope. However, Mathys Tel’s 92nd-minute strike ensured that the hosts claimed all three points at home, according to reports from skysports.com.
The English giants now face the challenge of bouncing back from this disappointment as they prepare to travel to face Burnley on Saturday. United will be eager to put their recent struggles behind them and regain their winning form in the upcoming fixture.
