Harry Maguire on the severity of criticism for him: It's natural, right, I'm the captain of Manchester United

Harry Maguire has received a lot of criticism from various parties in the past year. Maguire did not bother with the situation because it was a risk as captain of the Manchester United team.

Maguire became the 'scapegoat' for United's poor results in the 2021/2022 season. The media in England, fans, and even the pundits, are busy criticizing Maguire.

Not only at United, Maguire also received criticism for his performance while defending the England national team. This situation still occurs in the 2022/2023 season. Maguire is still the target of criticism from many quarters.

Maguire's situation was very complicated. Last season, he even had to be rested by United for receiving terror from fans via social media.

I Am Big News!

Harry Maguire has a strong mentality to handle criticism for him. He realized that it was part of his career risk. Maguire is United's captain and a few mistakes will get more attention.

"I don't focus on other people and what people say, I think if people made a story about me, I'm the captain of Manchester United, that would be big news," Maguire said.

Maguire became an easy target for the media in England. He received criticism from all aspects. Meanwhile, according to the former Leicester City player, not much is discussed when he gets a good achievement.

"That's why they criticize me, they look for clicks, and things like that. When I played at Euro 2020, after being injured for eight weeks and not playing, I was named in the Team of the Tournament," said Maguire.

Always Ready to Play

Harry Maguire's situation is now even more difficult. Not only often receive criticism, Maguire is also rarely played. Maguire often sits on the bench. His position was evicted by Lisandro Martinez.

"Obviously, manager Erik ten Hag decided to leave me out of the starting xi when the team played, and United won after that," Maguire said.

"I work hard on the training pitch to make sure I'm ready when the opportunity to play for me comes. That's all I can do to try and help the team," said the 29-year-old.
