‘Unacceptable,He played rubbish’: Jamie Carragher tears into 27-year-old Manchester United player after what he did this week.



“Absolute, He played nonsense”: Jamie Carragher laments the 27-year-old Manchester United player’s performance this week.Jamie Carragher criticized the performance of Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana this week against Galatasaray.The night in Turkey for the Cameroonian international in the Champions League was one to remember. His two howlers were decisive in his team’s loss. According to Carragher, Onana’s performance was deemed “reprehensible.”


Jamie Carragher criticizes Andre Onana of Manchester United.

Andre Onana was acquired by Manchester United from Inter Milan for £47.2 million during the summer (Sky Sports).

Last season, the 27-year-old had an outstanding campaign in Italy, contributing to the Nerazzurri’s run to the Champions League final.Onana’s performances persuaded Erik ten Hag that he was the ideal candidate for Manchester United; consequently, the Red Devils signed the Cameroonian in lieu of David de Gea.


That move has been a complete failure thus far. The most recent of Onana’s numerous errors occurred on Wednesday during Manchester United’s 3-3 draw with Galatasaray.


Regarding the errors, Jamie Carragher harshly criticized Onana’s performance, calling it “terrible.”


“Great goalkeepers transform defeats into draws and draws into narrow victories, particularly at the largest clubs,” he wrote in The Telegraph. For a group pursuing the most prestigious prizes, attaining the status of a world-class caretaker consists of performing the bare minimum exceptionally well.


“Unfortunate for Onana, he has been accountable for transforming victories into draws and draws into defeats since the beginning of his United tenure. United’s catastrophic situation in the Champions League is an immediate and direct result of his mistakes. Onana was subpar at home and away against Galatasaray, and in the initial group match against Bayern Munich, he cost the team. Although he saved a penalty kick at the eleventh hour against Copenhagen at Old Trafford, the numerous negatives significantly outweigh that one positive.The goalkeeper’s performance in Turkey was deemed unsatisfactory for Manchester United. A goalkeeper under the age of 18 would not have been expected to commit the elementary handling error that led to Galatasaray’s second goal. On Wednesday evening, if a junior goalkeeper was promoted and performed similarly to Onana, he would likely never again make the first team.


“United States has suffered too many cheap goals due to Onana.” His hopes of putting behind his poor start to his Old Trafford tenure have been dashed, and Wednesday was an enormous step in the wrong direction. Already, Onana has acquired a reputation for being a liability. Time will be required to surmount and reversal that.


Onana must improve the situation for Manchester United.

The most onerous aspect of the goalkeeper position is the rarity of opportunities to conceal errors.


This season, Andre Onana has realized this more than ever before; since joining Manchester United, the 27-year-old has been committing errors of increasing magnitude.


The Cameroonian international must immediately lift himself back up. His errors, which are causing losses for his team, will not be tolerated; he is without a doubt an exceptional goalkeeper; however, he will be replaced.


Newcastle United will be the opponent of Manchester United in what promises to be a very difficult matchup. It will be intriguing to observe Onana’s reaction to the mistakes he made this week.
