Man Utd news: Andre Onana handles Harry Maguire row amid Erik ten Hag’s worry

Manchester United is preparing for their first encounter of the new Champions League season on Wednesday night against German powerhouse Bayern Munich.

The Red Devils enter the match having suffered consecutive Premier League defeats against Arsenal and Brighton. It has since been alleged that there were a number of dressing room brawls following Saturday’s home loss to the Seagulls.

Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay are believed to have exchanged verbal strikes, while central defensive partners Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez also clashed as the investigation into the poor performance commenced.

The focus has since shifted to the journey to Munich, where Erik ten Hag’s squad will arrive as underdogs at the Allianz Arena.

Having said that, here are some of the primary topics of discussion encircling the Red Devils on September 20.

Even though it occurred during the preseason, Andre Onana’s now-famous attack on Harry Maguire has re-entered the news cycle. In July, the goalkeeper was observed berating the maligned defender on the field against Borussia Dortmund.

Onana was accused of being too severe on Maguire, particularly in light of their differing positions on the team at the time. At that time, Maguire was still club captain, whereas the Cameroonian international had just arrived at United from Inter Milan.

Onana stated, “Harry is a very good person, and I have a good relationship with him; I spoke with him this morning before we took off.”

“What happened there was done immediately after the game. We’re big men, and what happened on the field remains on the field, so I don’t believe we need to give too much weight to what occurred. Our relationship is strong.”

The United manager has admitted that he is concerned about the rate at which Red Devils players are experiencing fitness issues. Prior to the match against Bayern, Ten Hag is missing 12 players, nine of whom are injured and ruled out.

Maguire is the most recent player to sustain an injury, and while it is unclear how long he will be sidelined, it has been confirmed that he will not participate against the Bundesliga giants.

“He had some complaints and we have to see how bad it is,” Ten Hag said. “He completed his training [today], but he was not fit to travel.
