Why Harry Maguire is world class in England jersey and not in Manchester United jersey
Harry Maguire has started in the last three games for England. In these three matches, the manager Gareth Southgate has rotated every position in the team, especially in the defense. Only Harry Maguire remains unchanged in the team, he has played in all the 90 minutes games for England.
This is not a favour from the manager, it’s based on merit. Manchester United paid a hefty price for Harry Maguire but the measure of hate and criticism that he has received from the club fans and opposition fans is alarming. The Captain’s band makes things, even more, tougher for Harry.
What makes up a better team is having a good player in every position, Harry essentially plays in the center-backs and also in the midfield at Manchester United. This is because the Red Devils do not have a proper defensive midfield player who holds up for the defense to settle well.
With Declan Rice in England squad, he provides cover in the midfield. Scott Mc Tominay and Fred are not mentally defensive midfielders. To solve the existing problem of having to deal with Harry Maguire overlapping, Manchester United has to sign a defensive midfielder this summer.
