Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes responds to question about Andre Onana mistakes

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes refused to get drawn into a question about Andre Onana’s mistakes following the 3-3 draw against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

United had a two-goal lead within 20 minutes thanks to goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Fernandes in Istanbul, but the game ended in a draw after some costly goalkeeper mistakes from Onana.

Onana conceded twice from free-kicks against Galastaray and the second of those goals was a particularly poor mistake.

Before being interviewed by TNT Sports, Fernandes watched the goals back on a monitor and the reporter observed that he looked disappointed while watching the free-kick goals Onana had conceded.

When asked how he could explain those goals by the reporter, he said: “Nothing, I’ve nothing to explain, we conceded the goals and there’s nothing to do now. We could have done better with those two goals, but it is what it is.”

Fernandes added: “Even in Copenhagen, I know we had one player less, but we scored to make it 3-2 and we have to secure the result, we have to understand that in these kind of games, you have to be smart and manage the game better.

“It’s many things, it comes from everyone, we all have to step up and take responsibility for their own mistakes. We have to look forward to the next games now and see if we can go through. We don’t depend only on ourselves now but it is what it is.”

In a separate interview with TNT Sports, Scott McTominay insisted it was a team effort and not Onana’s fault: “We’re a team and no matter the weather, if it’s good or bad, it doesn’t make any difference to us.

“We’re all a team and we’re in it together. There’s no individuals in this team, we’re all going to stick together and prove that we can go on and do well and hopefully, we get fortunate in terms of the results in our group.”
