Andre Onana has massively struggled with form this season.
Man United manager Erik ten Hag has defended the struggling Cameroonian goalkeeper who was at fault for two of Galatasaray’s goals in Manchester United’s 3-3 draw in the Champions League.
The 27-year-old has been in the spotlight since United decided to spend £47m this summer and made several high-profile errors which could cost United their spot in the Champions League.
Ten Hag ensures that the former Inter Milan goalkeeper will not be dropped in the final Champions League group game against Bayern Munich.
The Dutch manager has pointed to the stats that says Onana is the second-best goalkeeper in the Premier League.
“If you analyse it well then you see he is the second best goalkeeper in the Premier League based on stats, so his expected defending goals is the second best in the Premier League,” Ten Hag said.
“He’s doing well. Also he knows that in the Champions League he makes some mistakes but all over you see the first five months he is doing particularly well.”
The Cameroonian will now face a major test when United travels to St James Park on Saturday night.
