The goalkeeper of Manchester United, Andre Onana, caused different reactions after his poor performance in the match against Galatasaray. Many believe that Andre Onana was to blame for all three goals. Paul Scholes, the legend of Manchester United emphasized that Onana brings nervousness to the team.

Although many believe that the Cameroonian is not to blame for the third goal, Scholes has a different opinion. ‘Well, what can you say? It’s a terrible mistake again [for the second goal]. I’m not sure what he’s actually trying to do, punch it away with his right hand? It’s weak.

He makes people nervous, he makes the defence nervous, he makes the whole team nervous. He makes simple saves look really, really difficult. Beaten at the near post [for Galatasaray’s third]. We’ll probably have goalkeeper experts who will know more about this than us, but again I don’t think he should be beaten at the near post.'

- he said, as quoted by METRO. There are many things about Onana that Scholes is not happy with. ‘His positioning is poor. For me, all three goals are down to him. His technique looks awkward.’

Paul Scholes on Erik ten Hag

Scholes believes that Erik ten Hag is to blame, considering that he is the one who decides who will come to the team.

On the other hand, the Manchester United legend is disappointed because Onana looked great in the previous few matches. It seems that the Champions League is the biggest problem for him. ‘Managers ultimately have to take responsibility for all their signings.

It’s a shame tonight because in the last few weeks, in the Premier League especially, he’s started to look OK. He’s looking a lot better, but still making unconventional saves, and it’s the Champions League where it’s been a real struggle for him.'
