KSI took the opportunity to jokingly claim that he is better than Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana.
The YouTube star played in between the sticks in the Sidemen Charity Match on Saturday afternoon.

He reckons he is better than Onana at this moment in time@sportbible X
Previous appearances have seen him play outfield but he fancied his chances in goal ahead of his upcoming fight against Tommy Fury.
Sidemen FC beat the YouTube All-Stars 8-5 at the London Stadium, with KSI therefore failing to keep a clean sheet for the former.
He even conceded a comical own-goal but still reckons he is better than one of the Premier League’s elite goalkeepers.
When asked by SPORTbible after the match if he is better than Onana, he said: “You know what, in his current form with his flappy hands, yes.”
The United star, along with the rest of his teammates, has faced a mixed start to the season.
He has kept just one clean sheet since signing from Ajax in the summer and conceded three times in their defeat against Arsenal.
Declan Rice scored the Gunners’ second goal of the game in second half stoppage-time, with Onana getting a hand to his shot but failing to keep it out.
It’s a strike that certainly pleased Arsenal fan KSI and he showed his appreciation by adding: “Thank you Onana for letting in that Rice beauty.”
Onana certainly hasn’t found it easy at United thus farGetty
Onana is now United’s no.1 choice in goal following David de Gea’s summer departure after 12 years at the club.
Erik ten Hag’s side face Brighton at home upon their return from the international break next weekend.
Onana looks set to return to the starting XI, although could be out of action for United in January should Cameroon qualify for the African Cup of Nations.
