27-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana has signed a five-year contract with Manchester United, and is due to join the club on their American tour.
This deal makes the widely-appreciated sweeper the eleventh African representative to play in the Premier League for the Red Devils.
The new number 24 allows Erik Ten Hag to change the way the team plays from the back, which will inevitably make United more press-resistant and tactically competitive when picking apart higher quality teams.
There will be mistakes as the team begins to adjust and develop its style going forward, but if supporters trust in the process, they may see success ahead for the Red side of Manchester.
If you need a good reference point, just go and watch the superstars monumental performance against the team’s local rivals in the most recent UEFA Champions League final.
The 6’3” shot stopper displayed a cool, calm and confident mentality when faced with the toughest striker on the earth, Erling Haaland.
His ability on the ball, when passing, dribbling and controlling the tempo is unique and rarely composed at the high level he plays at, making him one of the most entertaining keepers in Europe.
Andre Onana is set to be the most influential African player in the history of Manchester United.
I’m confident in his ability and mentality, and strongly believe the team have a genuine world-beater in the net for next season.
