Southgate Blames Ten Hag For Maguire’s Poor Form

Southgate Blames Ten Hag For Maguire’s Poor Form

England national team coach, Gareth Southgate has accused Man United manager, Erik Ten Hag for Harry Maguire’s drop in form.

Southgate said he has not seen a player treated the way Maguire is being handled at Manchester United with the 29-year-old dropped from the United XI following the season-opening defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

United’s Dutch manager now prefers the combination summer signing Lisandro Martinez and Varane in his central defence.

The decision to drop the England star appears to be paying off as Man United have won their last four games on the spin, including victories over Liverpool and Arsenal.

“But, for some reason there’s a big agenda with Harry Maguire and a big agenda against him,” Southgate told Channel 4.

“I’ve never known a player receive the sort of treatment that he has.

“He’s been a crucial part of us getting to a World Cup semi-final, he was named in the Team of the Tournament at the Euros.

“He knows what we think of him. He’s been, basically across that period, our most important defender.”


Early life

Maguire was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and was raised in the nearby village of Mosborough. His brothers, Joe and Laurence, are also footballers. He attended Immaculate Conception Catholic Primary School in Spinkhill and St Mary’s Roman Catholic High School in Chesterfield. From 7 to 16 years old, Maguire played as central midfielder for Sheffield United’s academy which helped him become the ball playing centre back he is today.

    If Mcguire is from a different nation other than England, Southgate and all UK pundits would have been reminding the world what a big mistake, a disaster his transfer to Manchester United was and would have given a million and one reason his contract should have been terminated a long time ago. Bailey’s case comes to mind, he was never this bad but we all remember the constant bashing he received from the pundits.

    Now Listen to the kind of domb argument being made by England national team coach Only because he feels Mcguire should be privileged for being English. Doesn’t matter that he’s been consistently the worst Man U player for the past three seasons, Man U coach is wrong for diagnosing his team’s problem and taking the appropriate action that has solved the problem,at least for the last three matches.

    Instead of being commended for identifying and fixing the problem, he’s being attacked by Southgate for not sticking with Mcguire who is clearly not fit to sit on Nottingham Forest bench with his current form.

    Simply put, Mcguire is clearly not a Man U type player. It’s time to offload him, he’s a Man U misfit. He should be playing in a team where there’s no pressure to win every football game unlike Man U that is expected by fans to win every single football match they are involved in.
