Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana was buzzing with confidence after victory against Fulham
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana was thrilled with Manchester United’s “brilliant” hard-fought victory over Fulham and thinks the idea of a crisis is just a given when you play for a team this size.
At Craven Cottage, the Cameroonian maintained his seventh clean sheet while wearing a United shirt. Bruno Fernandes scored a thrilling late goal on Saturday afternoon to round off a terrible week.
“I think you just have to be prepared to play for Manchester United. It is the price to pay when you are playing for such a big club. When you don’t win, everyone is upset. It is normal because we are Manchester United, we have to try to win everything.”
Onana has extraordinary talent. He gave outstanding performances for Ajax in the past seasons under Erik ten Hag. After that, he joined Inter Milan, where he helped them reach the Champions League final.
Following two devastating home losses to City and Newcastle before the game, concerns were raised over Erik ten Hag’s readiness for the management position at United. On a positive note, both Alejandro Garnacho and Facundo Pellistri contributed positively to the forward line; the latter, following some outstanding pressing play, was crucial in setting up the winning goal.
In United’s previous Champions League match, Onana was the hero, saving a last-minute penalty from Jordan Larsson to keep the three points intact. A win for us and a loss or draw for Galatasaray against Bayern Munich would be sufficient to move United up to the second spot in their group.
With 18 shots, Fulham had more attacks than United, but only three of those were on goal. Nevertheless, Onana had to be alert to stop Wilson’s rising left-footed shot, and he remained firm a few moments later to keep Palhinha at bay as United’s defence went missing.

United have had a terrible season, so this meagre victory cannot be seen as a turning point. Ten Hag will now understand that he can trust McTominay and Maguire. He ought to feel immense relief that they have chosen to remain at Old Trafford. We believe that Onana will be this consistent in his performance and help United overcome more difficult games.
