One Man Utd youngster brutally ripped into Andre Onana in training after Champions League nightmare

One Man Utd youngster brutally ripped into Andre Onana in training after Champions League nightmare

Andre Onana hasn't always been backed by his Man Utd teammates.

Andre Onana was brutally ripped into by a Manchester United youngster after enduring a Champions League nightmare.

Man United boss Erik ten Hag made a big decision in replacing long serving goalkeeper David de Gea last summer, and for a while it looked like he might have made a mistake.

Andre Onana arrived from Inter Milan to the tune of £47 million, a goalkeeper renowned for his confidence and ball-playing ability.

Though the Cameroonian has been one of United's best performers of 2024, in the first half of the season he looked a shadow of the goalkeeper who helped Inter reach the Champions League final last year.

Onana produced a series of costly mistakes during his first few months at Old Trafford, especially in the Champions League.

Errors against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray contributed to United finishing rock-bottom of their group and crashing out of the competition.

His lowest moment came in Istanbul in November, when his two mistakes saw United draw 3-3 with Galatasaray having led 3-1, a result that all but ended hopes of qualifying for the round of 16.

Many United fans quickly started losing patience with the 27-year-old, and it appears that his teammates started to doubt him as well.

According to The Athletic, one United youngster - who had barely played for the first-team - brutally called out Onana during a training session as he felt the goalkeeper wasn't saving enough shots.

The player said: "Are you going to save one or what?"

Onana's natural self confidence started to wane, and he reportedly told people close to him: "I don’t know what is happening to me with these mistakes. I always have confidence in myself but now I’m losing it."

Onana has improved massively since the turn of the year, rewarding the faith Ten Hag publicly placed in him.

"He’s doing very well," Ten Hag said after Onana impressed in United's FA Cup win against Nottingham Forest.

"He has very good performances in the Premier League, he’s progressing, so he has to see this as a base and step up from here."
