In the midst of what appears to be growing unhappiness between the coach and the players, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly upset with another of his players.
The Portuguese star later criticized Ten Hag in an emotional interview with Piers Morgan after the two had a major falling out at the start of last season.
Discord among his players persisted into the current season as well; Jadon Sancho is no longer a member of the Manchester United team after publicly criticizing Ten Hag’s remarks after being benched against Arsenal in September. But he’s not the only one who has to deal with his rage.
Ten Hag, according to the Daily Express, doesn’t think Andre Onana should have focused on advancing his career at Manchester United rather than returning to the Cameroon national team in September.
Onana was expelled from the World Cup in 2022 by Cameroon manager Rigobert Song after just two group games for a disciplinary reason; the goalie was apparently displeased with the team’s playing style. After that, Onana left international football in December 2022 at the age of just 26.
Onana, however, returned to the national squad for Cameroon’s September international matchup against Burundi after working out his concerns with Song. Ten Hag, however, is said to be upset by that choice as a result of Onana’s challenging transition to Manchester United.
The 27-year-old has made numerous errors for the Red Devils since joining them for £47m in the summer, and if he is chosen to represent Cameroon in the Africa Cup of Nations, he will be forced to miss at least two games in January and possibly more.
In Onana’s absence, Altay Bayindir is left as Manchester United’s top choice. The Turk, a seasoned goalkeeper at Fenerbahce, switched to Erik ten Hag in the summer, but has not yet made his debut there.
