Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana said that his error contributed to his team’s 4-3 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich.
A third consecutive defeat ramps up the pressure on United manager Erik Ten Hag and two late goals from Casemiro masked the gulf in class between the sides at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.
However, United had started brightly until Leroy Sane’s strike slipped through Onana’s grasp on 28 minutes.
“After my mistake, we lost control of the game. It’s a difficult situation for us, especially for me because I’m the one who let the team down,” Onana told TNT Sports.
The Cameroonian was a standout for Inter Milan during their march to the Champions League final last season, but since joining the Red Devils in a £47 million ($58 million) transfer, he has struggled.
For the first time since 1978, the Red Devils have now let up three or more goals in three straight games.
“My start in Manchester is not so good, it’s not how I want (to play),” added Onana.
“Today is one of my worst games and it is difficult because we have big ambition, we want to win everything – it was a big opportunity for us to bounce back after the situation we are facing.
“It’s a tough time. We have to be together and learn from our mistakes because it’s the only thing to do.”
For the first time in 37 years, United has already dropped four of its first six games of the season.
