Erik ten Hag Applauds Andre Onana's Debut

Erik ten Hag expressed satisfaction with Andre Onana's debut for Manchester United, even though the goalkeeper conceded two goals in a defeat against Real Madrid.


Onana, the £47 million signing from Inter Milan, made his much-anticipated first appearance for United but faced an early setback when Jude Bellingham scored an exquisite chip just six minutes into the game. Later, Joselu beat him with a stunning bicycle kick, adding to the goalkeeper's challenges on his debut.


Despite the two goals conceded, United's manager, Ten Hag, praised Onana's overall performance. He commended the 27-year-old's solidity and highlighted two crucial saves that Onana made during the match.


"I think he was good, solid," said Ten Hag. "He made two very good saves, so he was there in the moment the team needed him, he did his job, he integrated well in our team."


Ten Hag acknowledged that there is still work to be done, especially in terms of the team's defending. He emphasized the need to follow certain rules and integrate the new players seamlessly into their style of play.


Onana's selection as the replacement for the departing David de Gea was justified by his impressive performance on the field. Ten Hag, who had previously worked with Onana at Ajax, believes the goalkeeper possesses the qualities needed for the role.


One notable difference between Onana and De Gea is the former's comfort with the ball at his feet. Ten Hag mentioned that they will incorporate this attribute into their strategy and tactics, allowing Onana to be an asset in building plays from the back.


As the new season progresses, the fans eagerly anticipate how Onana will further adapt to United's style of play and make a significant impact in the team's performances. With Ten Hag's guidance and Onana's skills, United's goalkeeping department looks promising for the challenges ahead.
