Harry Maguire outdid Man Utd’s poor results and earned another Three Lions pick and his coach stated.
What did Southgate say about Harry Maguire?
English football manager Gareth Southgate says he never crossed our minds to ditch English footballer Harry Maguire for the England March Internationals amid the Red Devils captain’s rough uniform at Old Trafford. Harry Maguire and teammate Luke Shaw were selected for the last round of rigging three lions later in the month, although Man Utd teammates Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford were both left out of the club’s on-pitch struggle. However, speaking after the announcement, England boss Gareth Southgate admitted that the defender was always going to play a role for him, especially after his stellar performances over the years in the Russian 2018 and Euro 2020 leagues.
About the inclusion of centre-back Gareth Southgate said he thinks it ever entered their minds not to pick Harry Maguire for this squad. According to Southgate, Harry Maguire was a key part of the opening XI that took them to the World Cup semi-finals and the Euro final. Gareth has no doubt that Harry is one of their best backs.
A little about the topic
Harry Maguire has come under fire for much of the season, following his relentless efforts throughout the 2020-21 campaign skipping Man Utd to a Premier League second place and the Europa League final he missed through injury. But he has suffered since Euro 2020, and has been a lightning rod for criticism around the club, from reports of a rift with Ronaldo to individual errors resulting in serious underperformance. However, the 29-year-old’s talent remains at his disposal and a two-week break with England – for which he has been one of the most consistent performers of recent years – could be exactly what the defender needs to get back on top form.
