Daley Blind: Onana is a winner

Daley Blind maintains that Andre Onana is a “great” goalkeeper, despite experiencing a less-than-ideal beginning at Old Trafford.

The pressure is mounting on Cameroon international Andre Onana since his arrival at Manchester United from Inter during the summer transfer window. Onana was brought in to replace the error-prone David de Gea, but he has already made several mistakes.

His most recent high-profile error was when he deflected a weak Leroy Sane shot into his own net during the 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Prior to that, he faced humiliation during the 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League in August.

Daley Blind and Andre Onana were teammates at Ajax for four years before Onana’s move to Inter. Blind, who now plays for La Liga side Girona, remains confident in his former teammate’s abilities. He described Onana as a complete goalkeeper and believes that when he is in the right mental state, he can be highly dependable.

“He’s one of the great goalkeepers in the world,” Daley Blind told The Athletic. “He has a nonchalance, he’s complete and when he has his head right he can be one of the best goalkeepers. He’s a winner. Always wants to train more. I had a good relationship with him.”

Andre Onana will aim to validate Daley Blind’s faith in him by delivering a strong performance when Manchester United faces Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.
