While Andre Onana has had a few hiccups since his summer move to Manchester United, he showcased his abilities by making a crucial penalty save in extra time during the midweek Champions League match against Copenhagen, securing a vital 1-0 victory.

In the aftermath of his penalty save, Onana was enthusiastically embraced by his teammates, and according to Guardiola, this experience has buoyed his spirits as he approaches the upcoming weekend.

Guardiola has been well-acquainted with the former Ajax shot-stopper for several years.

The Manchester City manager remarked, “I remember we have a mutual friend who spoke very highly of him, but I personally met him in Amsterdam. He’s an extraordinary player and now he’s at United.”

“Before every game, I always anticipate the best from the players we are about to face. I prefer to focus on their strengths rather than their weaknesses.”

“His last-minute penalty save aided Manchester United in staying in contention to reach the last 16. Mentally, it’s a significant boost for both the team and him.”

“Everyone needs time to adapt to the Premier League, not just managers but also players, including goalkeepers. It’s a process for everyone. While some may adapt more quickly, I hold him in high regard as a goalkeeper.”
