Manchester United fans stand by Harry Maguire after England defeat

Manchester United fans joined together in supporting their captain Harry Maguire following his disappointing performance for England vs Denmark.

The talented centre-back has been short of form or confidence ever since his trip to Greece in the summer where he was arrested and went through a traumatic event.

Maguire was sent off for his international team in the latest of a string of poor performances for club and country and there’s now an obvious need for change.

The former Leicester City star has been in the limelight ever since his damaging trip abroad and he has not been given a rest whatsoever by either his international or club managers.

Supporters have often criticised Maguire but after his display for England they rallied together in an effort to protect their player.

It has been strange to see Maguire played so frequently despite what he went through as it was not something many fans were expecting to see.

Supporters were used to what Sir Alex Ferguson would do in terms of protecting his players and so were expecting to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer do the same.

The legendary Norwegian instead has relied on his captain, perhaps trusting his player’s judgement to speak up if a rest was needed.

Unfortunately most footballers would never admit to such a thing and Solskjaer should’ve kept his key player out of the limelight until things got better.

This summer’s transfer window has been one of the strangest in living memory. So cast your mind back to less stressful days and test your knowledge of past United arrivals and departures in our quiz below.
