Scholes blames one Man Utd player for three goals conceded against Galatasaray

Written by on November 30, 2023

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has said Andre Onana was responsible for all the goals they conceded in a 3-3 draw with Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils took a two-goal lead through Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes, but were pegged back when Hakim Ziyech’s free-kick left Onana flat-footed.

Scott McTominay made it 3-1, only for Onana to misread another Ziyech free-kick.

Kerem Akturkoglu then fired a blistering effort to level the scores.

Speaking on TNT Sports after the game Scholes said: “He makes people nervous, he makes the defence nervous, he makes the whole team nervous. He makes simple saves look really, really difficult.

“Beaten at the near post [for Galatasaray’s third]. We’ll probably have goalkeeper experts who will know more about this than us, but again I don’t think he should be beaten at the near post.

“His positioning is poor. For me, all three goals are down to him. His technique looks awkward.”
