Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes shifts Bayern Munich blame away from Andre Onana

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has shown his support for his team-mate and goalkeeper Andre Onana, following their 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Blaming himself for Bayern Munich‘s first goal in the game, in which Leroy Sane’s low shoot trickled under his arm, Onana took responsibility for the defeat after the game

The Manchester United goalkeeper told TNT Sports: “It’s difficult to lose this way as we started very good but after my mistake we lost control of the game. It’s a difficult situation for us, and me, as I let the team down. The team was really good but it was because of me we didn’t win this game.

“I’m happy for the work of the team but we have to move on – that is the life of a goalkeeper. We didn’t win today because of me.”
