ANDRE ONANA made a huge clanger to hand Bayern Munich the lead – and even Manchester United said they could not defend him.
The Red Devils had started the Champions League clash in Germany well and were holding the Bundesliga giants until disaster struck.

With 28 minutes on the clock, Leroy Sane cut in from the right and played a one-two with Harry Kane.
He then unleashed a first-time shot from 20 yards upon receiving it back but it was only low and central.
But instead of producing an easy save, United goalie Onana somehow managed to let the ball through his grasp and into the net.
Ex-United and Bayern midfielder Owen Hargreaves slammed Onana on TNT Sports at half time, saying: “”You just have to save that.
“I don’t know if he doesn’t get his feet set, but that ball just cannot go in. He knows straight away Onana.
“Sane doesn’t get a strong contact on it, he just has to keep that out.
“He is shaking his head, he is so frustrated. He knows he can’t make that mistake.”
Fellow pundit and United legend Rio Ferdinand added: “Nightmare scenario for Onana.
“Confident as you like with his feet. It’s a very very bad mistake.”
While Paul Scholes said: “He knows he’s made a big mistake.”
And even United fans said that they were unable to defend their stopper afterwards.
“OH MY GOD ONANA,” tweeted one while another wrote: “I can’t defend you.”
Along with crying laughing emojis, a fellow Red Devil said: “Better than De Gea. Andre Onana.”
“Onana is dreadful,” declared a fellow viewer, as another called his howler “absolutely shocking.”
“Onana is just a disgrace,” raged another, with another echoing those sentiments by tweeting: “What a clown.”
The long-serving David De Gea was allowed to leave United after his contract expired in June.
Manager Erik ten Hag moved to bring in Onana from Inter Milan due to the Cameroon international’s impressive footwork as well as shot-stopping abilities.
But the star got off to a nightmare start when he was chipped from the halfway line on his Old Trafford debut – and tonight’s howler will now also live long in the memory.
And it creates more headlines regarding the goalkeepers at Ten Hag’s disposal after the Dutchman named THREE on the bench for tonight’s game at Bayern.
Then, to make matters worse, United found themselves two goals down before the break as Serge Gnabry doubled the advantage.
And despite Rasmus Hojlund pulling one back after the restart, Harry Kane’s penalty soon restored Bayern’s two-goal advantage.
