Andre Onana was once again the centre of controversy following Manchester United's UEFA Champions League defeat against Galatasaray.

According to The Guardian, goals from Wilfried Zaha, Kerem Akturkoglu, and Mauro Icardi were enough to sink the Red Devils.

The match was riddled with individual errors, with Onana once again finding himself on the receiving end.

Onana costs Man United

The Cameroonian was largely responsible for United's defeat, with his goalkeeping mistakes costing his side.

The Mirror reports that the shot-stopper initially flapped at a cross to spread a real sense of unease as Akturkoglu went on to level matters shortly after Rasmus Hojlund had restored United's lead.

Onana went on to contribute to Casemiro's red card following his dreadful blind kick that left the midfielder with no choice but to bring down a Galatasaray player in the area.

Fans react to Onana's performance

The former Inter Milan keeper's underwhelming performance sparked reactions from fans, with many believing he is not the right man for United.

@Jiji_Byte noted:

"Andre Onana's United highlight so far is a complete comedy show."

@Kalophain joked:

"Andre Onana has done it again" 😭😭😭😭😭

@AFCMAZZ reckoned:

"Andre Onana vs Galatasaray. This has to be the worst comp of a goalkeeper."

Ten Hag defends Onana

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Erik ten Hag launching a passionate defence of Onana in the wake of his costly mistakes in the Champions League.

The Cameroonian was between the sticks on Tuesday night when United hosted Galatasaray for their second Group A encounter played at Old Trafford.

However, Onana did little to help his side earn a positive result, with his costly mistakes denying the hosts the three points against the Turkish giants.
