Manchester United players are still seething at the way David de Gea was treated amid Andre Onana’s struggles

Manchester United players are still seething at the way David de Gea was treated amid the struggles of his replacement Andre Onana, according to the Sun.

Manager Erik ten Hag made it clear that the Spaniard was no longer in his plans even though he kept the most clean sheets (17) last season, picking up the Premier League Golden Glove award as a result.

De Gea left Man United as a free agent after 12 years after the club opted against activating the option of extending his deal for another campaign.

He is currently without a club and the Red Devils snapped up Onana as his replacement, parting with £44 million to recruit the services of the Cameroon international from Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old has conceded ten league goals in five games and has been partly to blame for their three defeats in the English top flight.

Onana dropped a clanger in the 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in their Champions League opener on Wednesday, allowing the Bundesliga side to open the scoring with a simple effort.

A huge error from the former Ajax star allowed Leroy Sane’s shot to wriggle under his body when he was expected to make a routine save.

Onana’s displays have not helped the confidence of the team, and the players are still unhappy that De Gea was let go unceremoniously.

Despite the Spaniard’s struggles with playing out from the back, he was a force to be reckoned with in goal on his day.

De Gea had his bad days at the office, but he was generally reliable during most of his time at Old Trafford.

Onana has to do better going forward, and he is undoubtedly a top goalie, but it has to reflect in his game and he will be hoping to respond with an excellent performance against Burnley on Saturday.
