Manchester United goalie Andre Onana showed off his ball-playing ability by momentarily switching to midfield during his team’s match against Tottenham.
Onana is making his competitive debut for United after coming from Inter Milan in July.
Erik ten Hag signed him because of his ability to play the ball out from the back, with the goalie not afraid to take risks and receive the ball in hazardous places.
That was evident against Tottenham, when he was first to a high ball upfield before bringing it down on his left foot.
He then advanced a few steps, beating Richarlison’s press before pinging the ball out wide to Alejandro Garnacho on the left wing.
The ball not only separated the defense, but it also put the on rushing Garnacho in a position to assault Tottenham’s defense.
