Man Utd Legend Rio Ferdinand Warns Andre Onana Over Terrible Mistake vs. Bayern Munich in UCL
- Rio Ferdinand is not happy with Andre Onana's mistake against Bayern Munich
- The Manchester United legend is not impressed with the goalkeeper's performance against Bayern Munich
- The Cameroon goalkeeper has not lived up to expectations since joining the Red Devils
Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has fired a stern warning to Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana after a costly mistake against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.
The former Ajax shot-stopper joined the Red Devils in the summer as a replacement for Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea.
Onana's signing came with a lot of optimism, but he has failed to live up to expectations since moving to England.
During United's first group game in this season's Champions League, the former Inter Milan goalie made a costly mistake that led to the first goal of the match.
After the first half, Ferdinand, who was a guest at TNT Sports, expressed frustration that Onana conceded such a weak effort off Sane's foot.
"This is a nightmare scenario for Onana.
"He's as confident as you like with his feet, but as a goalkeeper, you're paid to come in and make saves.
"It's a great bit of skill from Sane and he’s set up but he doesn't hit it with any real purpose. It’s not wide of him, it's not in the corners.
"Onana’s reaction, he should save it, it is meat and drink for him. He should be picking this up and looking for his next pass. It's a very, very bad mistake and one that he needs to recover from."
Manchester United went on to lose the match against the Bavarians 4-3, with new signing Rasmus Hojlund scoring his first goal and former Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro getting a brace.
