Fans are all saying the same thing after Andre Onana is chipped from centre circle on Old Trafford debut

Fans are all saying the same thing after Andre Onana is chipped from centre circle on Old Trafford debut

Andre Onana was chipped on his first appearance at Old Trafford and many fans were made a point about David de Gea.

Fans all made the same point about David de Gea and Andre Onana after the new Manchester United goalkeeper was caught off his line on his Old Trafford debut.

After United decided against offering long-time No.1 De Gea a new contract, the Red Devils paid £47 million to bring in Onana from Inter Milan.

Erik ten Hag was desperate to bring in a goalkeeper equipped for the modern game and Onana immediately showcased his abilities on the ball on his debut against Real Madrid.

He also let everyone know just how demanding he is by screaming at Harry Maguire after a mistake in the defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

But the Cameroonian was caught out in his first appearance at the Theatre of Dreams against RC Lens when Florian Sotoca dinked Onana from the centre circle after Diogo Dalot gave the beall away cheaply.

Having adopted a high starting position, Onana scrambled back to his goal but fell into his net after being beaten.

And while the strike was sensational, Onana came in for a lot of criticism for his part in the goal as many claimed De Gea would have saved it.

One said: "De Gea would have stayed in the line and saved that. Onana is in for a long season."

A second commented: "Safe to say De Gea would of saved that as he would of been stood on his line."

A third agreed: "Dalot did a bad pass but onana is more to blame. Onana is too far out. De Gea would've saved that."

A fourth added: "Every goal I’ve seen Onana concede de Gea would’ve saved it."

A fifth summarised: "De Gea didn’t come off his line, but didn’t get lobbed from the half way line, admittedly, he messed up a few things. Onana plays much more forward, get lobbed from the half way line."

United turned things around in the second half, with Marcus Rashford, Antony and Casemiro all finding the net in quick succession.

Ten Hag's men have another friendly against Athletic Bilbao in Dublin on Sunday before they begin their Premier League campaign against Wolves on 14 August.
