The 27-year-old goalkeeper from Cameroon, known for his fiery exchanges with colleagues, was brought in at the interval. A loose pass from Harry Maguire to Christian Eriksen presented Dortmund with an opportunity which Onana heatedly criticised Maguire for.
After successfully blocking Sebastian Haller, Onana was seen racing to Maguire to express his frustration. The former United captain maintained his silence, unlike Brandon Williams, who was caught up in a verbal spat with Tom Heaton, United’s starting goalkeeper for the concluding match of their American tour. The defeat took place before a crowd of 50,857 at the Allegiant Stadium.
Williams was blamed by Heaton for Dortmund’s second goal after he failed to block Donyell Malen’s response to Diogo Dalot’s stunning opener. Heaton hinted that Williams was too slow and had left Malen unmarked, a suggestion Williams disagreed with, voicing his opinion robustly.
An equaliser for United came from Antony but a further defensive blunder from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, yielding Dortmund the ball near the penalty area, led to Youssoufa Moukoko scoring the deciding goal.
18-year-old Omari Forson’s performance was dampened by a confrontation with Karim Adeyemi, leading coach Erik ten Hag onto the pitch and drawing complaints from Bruno Fernandes. Dortmund continued to provoke the young midfielder, seemingly disrupting his focus.
Teen midfielder Kobbie Mainoo is expected to face a lengthy period out due to an ankle injury incurred in the 2-0 defeat by Real Madrid in Houston earlier in the week.
After a triumphant start to their pre-season, United have now suffered back-to-back defeats. They have two remaining pre-season fixtures to play, against Lens at Old Trafford and Athletic Bilbao in Dublin, before the Premier League season begins against Wolves at Old Trafford on August 14.
United are hopeful to secure Rasmus Hojlund, Eriksen’s teammate from the Denmark national team, in a deal from Serie A club Atalanta potentially costing up to £72m.
Eriksen, former Tottenham and Inter Milan midfielder, spoke highly of Hojlund, “People outside Denmark don’t know enough about Hojlund because we don’t get enough media attention,” he said, “He’s developed significantly over the past year. He’s a strong number nine. I’ve said a lot of good stuff about him, and also some bad stuff.”
Despite recent losses, United’s coverage is expanding more than ever – ensuring fans never miss a beat of their favourite Premier League team. Stay tuned for more updates and exclusive content.
