Harry Maguire has been widely criticized throughout a disappointing 2021-22 campaign.


A little about the topic

Ex-Red Devils captain Nemanja Vidic has said Manchester United should waive Maguire to correct his poor form. The England international has struggled to justify his £80m price tag since joining Man Utd from Leicester City in 2019. Harry Maguire took over the captaincy halfway through his first season at Old Trafford, but his authority has often been questioned, especially this season as the Red Devils slipped to seventh in the PL standings.


What did vidic say?

Manchester United are at risk of missing out on Champions League qualification and have been knocked out of every major cup competition. Their chances of securing a top four PL finish were seriously dented by a 1-0 loss at Everton on Saturday, as Anthony Gordon scored the victory via deflection from Harry. Nemanja, who has won five league titles and the Champions League in an extremely impressive eight-year run at Old Trafford as a player, believes the Englishman should now be taken out of the firing line.

When asked about the centre-back’s recent problems, Nemanja Vidic said that every player has form issues at some time in his career. According to Vidic he did and it is clear that Harry Maguire is not up to par this season. Vidic thinks they can do a few things and one of them is not to play every game as they try to get back in shape and gain confidence.

The coach could play him in lighter games, not that PL had a lot, and take him to harder matches. The player needs to feel powerful and strong again on the field, not like now, where he feels that this is not happening for him. Nemanja Vidic says it’s hard to play well when they’re under so much pressure because people are waiting for you to make a mistake.
