Manchester United captain Harry Maguire insists he doesn’t have to prove himself anymore.
England’s ‘Manchester Evening News’ said on the 25th (Korean time), “Man Utd’s Maguire has admitted that he wants to regain his place at Old Trafford, believing that his form has been positive for both the club and national team this season.” told
Maguire is a Manchester United captain and centre-back. Maguire wore a Manchester United uniform in the summer of 2019, recording the highest transfer fee among defenders in history with an amount of £ 80 million (approximately 125 billion won). Fortunately, he was not burdened with the transfer fee. After the transfer, Maguire started every game and centered the team’s defense.
However, after the European Football Federation (UEFA) Euro 2020, the form declined sharply. Slow speed, which was pointed out as a weakness, often exposed the back space, and in the process of defending the opponent, he often used his hands and gave away penalty kicks (PK).
Eventually, after the appointment of manager Ten Hagh, he became a bench resource. Even if the period he missed due to a hamstring injury in the middle is included, only 12 of the 24 games he played as a starter. Also, as the newly recruited Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Baran showed a good look, Maguire’s position was further reduced.
But Maguire was full of confidence. In an interview with British ‘PA Sports’, he said, “I haven’t played as much as I wanted this season, but I think my performance this year is good. People think I’m not playing, but the last 8 or 9 games I’ve played have been won by us. “He said his form was good.
“It’s hard to remember a game I lost at Manchester United. My influence is still there. I love playing for my country. I feel like I’ve never let my country down in more than 50 games with the national team. Most, if not more, of the players. He added that he played similarly to the players of the . 먹튀검증
Then he said he didn’t need proof. Maguire said: “I feel I am good enough to play at a high level and I have proven over the past five or six years. Obviously I struggled at the club last season but I proved myself to manager Gareth Southgate. He has selected me among the many English centre-backs. I’ve done it. If you ask other players, I’m sure they’ll know what I’m bringing to the team.”
Maguire continued: “I’m approaching 30 years of age, but I feel I don’t have to prove it anymore. I’ve played over 50 games for the national team and scored the most goals of any English defender. And 200 for United. I participated more than once, and I served as the captain for three years,” he appealed to himself.
