Manchester United are at a crossroads at the start of the season, and one of the main dilemmas they face is the goalkeeper position, which has generated a passionate debate among the ‘red’ fans. David De Gea considered a recent legend of the club, left the team in a decision that was not fully accepted by all English fans.
According to the newspaper Sport, the controversy surrounding this decision seems to be increasing after the doubts that André Onana has raised in the games in which he has defended the Old Trafford goal, conceding a total of 18 goals in 10 games. Beyond the unfavorable statistics, what is worrying is the feeling of insecurity that he transmits with his continuous mistakes, undermining confidence in Erik Ten Hag’s team. The coach seems to have trouble building a solid defense from the back.
The solution to the problem in the goal
It is understandable that many Manchester United fans long for the return of David De Gea, seeing him as the solution to changing the dynamic of the team. However, this option seems distant due to the trust that Ten Hag has placed in the Cameroonian goalkeeper, whom he expressly requested to reinforce the goal. Let us remember that David De Gea is without a team after not expanding his relationship with United since no club was willing to pay the cachet that the Madrid native, one of the highest-paid goalkeepers on the planet, has.
