Manchester United’s season has been one to forget in many ways. The Red Devils have been a shadow of their usual self and have performed well below-par throughout the campaign. United have managed just 60 points in the season to finish sixth in the table to secure their worst-ever Premier League finish. Despite a lot of negatives, the club can take some positives from their final two wins.

After going through a bad patch, Manchester United registered two notable victories over Newcastle United at home and Brighton & Hove Albion away from home to end the Premier League season. These two wins will give the Red Devils confidence ahead of the massive FA Cup final against Manchester City at the weekend. Ahead of the clash, Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane returned from injuries. Some of the other injured players are also back in training, giving the club a massive boost.

Andre Onana on returning injured players

Andre Onana is happy with the players who have returned from injuries, as he feels that the team requires everyone possible for the game on Saturday. “They are very important players for us and we are happy when we see them on the pitch. Much more are already starting to train so hopefully we will be all together at Wembley on Saturday because we need everyone, we need all our players, we need our fans because it’s going to be a really difficult game,” he told MUTV.

Onana is keen to win the final for the supporters, who he believes have stood by the team through good and difficult moments. “One hundred per cent, it’s been a difficult season for them and for us. We must win this for them because they travel a lot of kilometres to support us and we feel them. They are always behind us when we are down so from here, we can only thank them for all of their support this year. For me, it was difficult at the start and they were behind me so I’m very thankful to them. Let’s end on Saturday at Wembley, we will be there and we will fight until the end,” he stated.

The goalkeeper then shifted the attention to Sunday’s win over Brighton, as he lauded the work put in by his teammates. “It’s a fantastic win [against Brighton], a good moment. We have to keep working hard, keep pushing. I’m happy for the hard work of my team-mates, it was not easy against a very good opponent. Now we have ahead a very important game for us, for the club, for the fans, for me and for my team-mates – a big final so now we are thinking about it,” he added.
