Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana claims the Red Devils are a bigger club than his former club Inter.
The Cameroon international was named the best goalkeeper of the 2022-23 Champions League but so far has failed to meet the expectations in the Premier League.
In an interview with Sky Sport Italia, Onana said his dream came true after joining a big club like Manchester United.
“It’s too big as a dream. I come from a humble family, we had nearly nothing. I started playing with my friends in Cameroon and I didn’t expect I would have this career,” he said.
“The truth is that it’s something big. I’ve been working all my life to be here. and I am extremely proud to represent Manchester United and wear this shirt that weighs a lot.”
‘Manchester United are a bigger club than Inter’
Manchester United is in seventh place in the Premier League table after suffering nine defeats. Ten Hag’s side has also been eliminated from the Champions League group stage. Onana said he is not bothered by criticism because he experienced a similar situation at Inter before establishing himself as a key player.
“Errors are part of the training. People have big expectations from me; this is why I’ve been criticised a lot,” he said.
“To me, it’s not a problem because I am accustomed to it. It happened at Inter too. I was criticised at the beginning and it ended with eternal love with Inter.
“Manchester United are a bigger club and people have big expectations. but I am sure that by doing things well, we will soon smile as it happened at Inter. Not many believed in us [last season], but then we proved what we could do. and I am really happy with what we achieved last season.
“Now, my future is at Manchester United, we have to stand up and do well. These moments happen and we have to face them. Good and bad moments don’t last forever.”
