Onana: Cameroon goalkeeper makes difficult admission after Man United draw

Andre Onana admits it was difficult to accept Manchester United getting only a point in their 1-1 Premier League draw with Brentford on Saturday.

The Bees dominated much of the contest with the Red Devils having to defend in large parts of the game.

It was however Erik ten Hag’s men that took the lead in added time through Mason Mount but it did not take Brentford too long to equalise thanks to Kristoffer Ajer.

Onana was not pleased with the result, stressing on the importance of United winning the game.

“I feel sad because we are Manchester United, so it doesn’t matter who you play. Everywhere we go, we have to win,” the Cameroonian told MUTV.

“We gave away this game in the end. We did a fantastic job defending – it was not our best game – but the most important thing was to win. So, yeah, it’s difficult.”

Onana was one of the standout players for United, making four saves. He was however not carried away by his performance and hopes his team can still make the top four.

“It’s good when you contribute and you have a victory,” he continued. “Of course, we didn’t lose this game, but the way we conceded that goal is bad for all of us because we are in this together. We blocked shots and made saves together. It’s difficult.

“As a leader and experienced player, we have to take responsibility and always stay positive because it’s the biggest club in the country. We have to continue working hard, be humble, and I know we will stick together because we did it in the last month. I hope we end in the top four.”

Onana has been Man United’s most featured player this season, featuring in all but one competitive game.
