Manchester United star Andre Onana has been criticized by a former defender.
Club legend Paul Parker has talked about Onana and how he is a “TV goalkeeper” due to his theatrical saves and ball-playing showmanship.
He believes that David De Gea, who United axed in the summer, was a better keeper.
“I can’t come out and say that I dislike Andre Onana because I don’t,” Parker told bettors.
“If we could go back in time, I would still have stuck with David De Gea. I still think he is a better goalkeeper.
“But that doesn’t make Onana a terrible goalkeeper. He is a good goalkeeper and he has been a part of improving the build-up play I think he can be a good asset on the counter-attacks as well when Man United needs to send [Marcus] Rashford or [Rasmus] Hojlund free with a deep pass.
“But I could wish that he made more extraordinary saves. Sometimes I feel like he is a TV goalkeeper who makes easy saves look hard to make. It’s only four games and he will improve but people shouldn’t be picking him as the scapegoat or anything already. The tough part for him is that every time he makes a mistake, everyone will compare him to David De Gea who was one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time at Man United. That’s not a nice pressure to have on your shoulders.”
