Written by Albert Echatah

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has backed Andre Onana once more, saying that “the stats” show he is the second-best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

The Cameroon international, who cost £47.2 million when he signed with Inter in the summer, had been playing well and without incident lately following a very rocky start to the season, but on Wednesday night in the Champions League, he made two extremely costly mistakes against Galatasaray.

After taking a significant stride to his left, Onana was unable to recover as Hakim Ziyech hit a very soft free kick down the middle of goal, limiting United’s advantage that they had seized to two goals in Istanbul.

The visitors led 3-1 in the second half, but their goalkeeper pulled a double save when Ziyech’s free kick squirmed in under Onana’s body. Paul Scholes, the icon of United, also thought Gala’s equalizer was the consequence of some bad positioning.

But thereafter, Ten Hag refrained from criticizing the 27-year-old, complimenting Ziyech on his “extraordinary” dead-ball abilities.

Ten Hag grinned and said, “If you analyse it well, you see he is the second-best goalkeeper in the Premier League based on stats,” in response to the question of whether the public and media are scrutinising Onana too much.

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
