Harry Maguire, Manchester United, 2022/23

Manchester United fans have reacted furiously to the claims that Harry Maguire blames goalkeeper David de Gea for his poor form in recent months.

Maguire was reported by ESPN to be frustrated by certain decisions that he feels have made him look bad.

Firstly, he believes that he has not been suited to playing with a relatively slow defensive partner, which in conjunction with United wanting to play with a high defensive line has left them exposed to quick forwards.

On top of this, though, Maguire reportedly blames De Gea for not being comfortable enough about playing a sweeping role behind the defence. It is also claimed that he does not like the goalkeeper’s lack of communication.

Maguire, meanwhile, has been something of a whipping boy for Man Utd fans in recent months and does not appear to have made himself any more popular with these reports.

Indeed, there are widespread calls for him to be stripped of the captaincy, while others believe he has been the leak that has plagued the Man Utd dressing room for months.

Indeed, dissenting voices are few and far between when it comes to defending the captain.

For Maguire, then, a tough season at Man Utd could be about to become a whole lot more awkward.
