Opinions on Maguire’s Role Amongst Man Utd Supporters
In a recent interview with ‘talkSPORT’, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown offered his perspective on the current role of Harry Maguire at Manchester United. Keown believes that the Red Devils are experiencing issues in their midfield.
At Old Trafford, Harry Maguire, the centre-back for Manchester United, has fallen out of favor in recent weeks. He has lost his prominent position in Erik ten Hag’s squad and has been relegated to the bench at the start of the season.
During his conversation with ‘talkSPORT’, Martin Keown, an Arsenal legend, discussed the current predicament of the 30-year-old and expressed his belief that Maguire is unfairly targeted as a scapegoat by Manchester United’s fans.
“I firmly believe that Maguire receives an excessive amount of unwarranted criticism. He has become a convenient target for Manchester United supporters. Since his absence from the team, I don’t think there has been much improvement,” Keown stated.
Keown further added, “When we talk about exploiting defensive weaknesses in teams, I believe that is something that can be done against Manchester United at the moment. The main issue lies in the midfield, and Harry Maguire is not necessarily the root of the problem.”
