Peter Schmeichel warmly welcomes Andre Onana to Manchester United but imparts some valuable advice to the club’s newest addition to the goalkeeping ranks.

The renowned Danish goalkeeper led the Reds in the historic 1999 Treble-clinching victory over Bayern Munich in Barcelona, marking his final match for the team he splendidly served under Sir Alex Ferguson, following his arrival from Brondby in 1991.

With his deep understanding of life at Old Trafford and the process of adapting to the Premier League after his transfer all those years ago, the 59-year-old was posed a question by club journalist Li Yan regarding the words of wisdom he would share with our new no.24.

“Manchester United is an immense club,” he affirmed. “Larger than Ajax, larger than Inter. Grasp that reality swiftly.

“Every action you take resonates globally. Instantaneously. This isn’t the case when you play for Inter.

“I believe he made a significant impact at Inter last season. He arrived at Inter and displaced [Slovenia international] Samir Handanovic, the team captain. I reckon he played a crucial role in their journey to the Champions League final [against Manchester City].

“Consequently, continue on that path,” Schmeichel advised. “However, comprehend this, based on my observations: you’re one of eleven players on the pitch. It’s about the collective effort and the camaraderie among the players you contribute to.

“That’s your role, you see. Don’t attempt to showcase your individual prowess to the world since we’re already well aware of it.”

Onana is anticipated to mark his competitive debut for United when we kick off our Premier League season against Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday.
