Onana Apply Vaseline On His Gloves

Onana applying Vaseline on his gloves in the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game garnered attention, sparking debate among fans.

This unconventional move during the match at Old Trafford left spectators questioning its significance and impact on the game’s outcome.

During the first half of the highly anticipated Manchester United vs. Liverpool showdown, fans were left in utter disbelief as they witnessed an unconventional move by goalkeeper Andre Onana, sparking controversy and debate across social media platforms.

VerseSports gathered that Liverpool took the lead at Old Trafford in the 23rd minute, courtesy of a well-executed corner kick that saw Luis Diaz finding the back of the net after Darwin Nunez’s header, leaving the home crowd stunned.

Despite the early setback, Manchester United’s defense was tested repeatedly, with Mohamed Salah’s powerful strike from the edge of the box being parried away by Onana, further intensifying the pressure on the hosts.

However, it was an off-field moment that caught the attention of fans and pundits alike. Just before a subsequent corner kick, cameras captured Onana applying Vaseline to his gloves, a move that drew sharp criticism and bewilderment from onlookers.

Even on commentary, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher expressed his dismay at Onana’s decision, questioning the goalkeeper’s unconventional tactics as he prepared to face yet another set-piece.

The sight of Onana using Vaseline on his gloves quickly became a topic of discussion on social media, with fans expressing disbelief and skepticism over the stopper’s actions, adding another layer of intrigue to an already intense and closely watched encounter.

As the match unfolded, the controversy surrounding Onana’s decision continued to linger, adding an unexpected twist to an eventful clash between two fierce rivals, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further developments both on and off the pitch.

One X user wrote: “Er, was that Onana putting Vaseline on his gloves…”

A second tweeted: “Hold on!? Why is Onana sticking Vaseline on his gloves? How does lubing your grip up help you catch the ball?”

A third added: “Anyone else notice Onana rubbing Vaseline on his gloves between corners? I’ve never seen that by a goalkeeper personally.”

A fourth exclaimed: “HOLD ON. Why is Onana putting Vaseline on his gloves???????”

A fifth said: “Can anyone who plays or coaches explain to me why Onana just whacked loads of Vaseline on his gloves?”

Another commented: “Onana putting Vaseline on his gloves!? Surely that’s the absolute opposite you want your GK gloves to be doing.”

But there’s a good reason as to why goalkeepers put Vaseline on their gloves as they use it as a sealant to keep moisture out of the gloves.
