Man Utd keeper Andre Onana makes claim about Wolves penalty controversy

Andre Onana 90 Minutes Save

​Manchester United keeper Andre Onana says he was confident the VAR call would go his way after Wolves had a penalty appeal controversially denied in last night’s 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Wolves created enough chances to have got something from the game, and believed they would get an opportunity to equalise deep into injury time when Onana clattered into Sasa Kalajdzic after failing to get to a cross.

However, referee Simon Hooper’s decision to play on was not overruled by VAR, leaving Wolves furious at being denied the chance of a leveller from the spot.

Quoted in the Irish Independent, Onana responds to whether it should have been a penalty by saying: “No, goalkeepers make decisions, sometimes you are right, sometimes you are not. I made a decision and I am responsible for everything.

For me, it was contact between two big guys and nothing happened. But for us, the most important thing was to win and I am happy for the victory. Of course, I was confident (it would not be given).”

Raphael Varane’s 76th-minute header separated the teams as Wolves were left to rue both the VAR decision and their own failure to convert chances created in an otherwise thoroughly impressive performance in Gary O’Neil’s first game as manager.

Wolves return to action on Saturday when they take on Brighton in their first home Premier League game of the season (3pm kick-off).
