Manchester United star Andre Onana has firmly shut down the idea that Wolves should have received a penalty in his side’s 1-0 victory at Old Trafford on Monday.

Raphael Varane broke the deadlock in the second half and ensured Erik ten Hag’s men secured all three points in their opening Premier League match of the season.

However, Onana was at the centre of controversy in second-half injury time after he charged off his line and attempted to claim a cross.

The 27-year-old Cameroonian shot-stopper instead took out Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic in his clearance attempt and calls were made for VAR to award a penalty.

Onana hits out at Wolves’ call for a penalty

Referee Simon Hooper didn’t take a second look at the incident on a pitch-side monitor, but he did book Wolves manager Gary O’Neil for protesting the decision.

Speaking after United’s win, Onana insisted that “nothing happened” in the incident and he was “responsible for everything.”

The United No 1 told Sky Sports: “No, totally no. I trust the referees.

“Like I always say, […] 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. I was calm and nothing happened.”

Onana went on to claim he was “very confident” that Wolves would not have received a penalty.

“Of course, I was confident,” he added, before producing a cheeky smile.

Onana thrilled with Old Trafford crowd

Onana replaced David de Gea as United No 1 in the summer, as high expectations have been placed on his shoulder ahead of his Old Trafford arrival.

The former Ajax and Inter Milan star revealed that he was “delighted” with United’s victory against Wolves and the reception he received from the Old Trafford faithful.

“It was amazing,” Onana told MUTV. “The fans are great, they are warm and I’m really happy to be here and delighted with the victory of the team.

“Important to get the victory and the clean sheet is what we want, but at the end of the day, the most important thing is the victory.

“I’m happy with our first victory at home and really important, now we have to look forward. Difficult games are coming and we have to be together because it’s not going to be easy.

“The team showed character and again we show we are a good club, we have good players, we are used to playing on the biggest platform so we show a lot of character because it was not easy.

“It’s very important for us, because we are expected to do great things this season so it’s important for us to win this game and it’s important to fight and try and win every game. We are United, Manchester United and we want to win every trophy.”
