“His unusually early exit will raise eyebrows among club observers as well as supporters about his commitment to the team.”
“Man United star Harry Maguire stomped out of Old Trafford within minutes of the final whistle following the team’s defeat to Brighton, sources have told Football Insider.
Manchester United’s 20-game Premier League winning streak at home came to an end on Saturday as they suffered a humiliating 1-3 defeat at the hands of high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion.
It is clear to see that the former Leicester City man is not in the manager’s plans moving forward and he should have accepted the chance to revive his career at West Ham United in the summer.
The midfield and defence was ripped to shreds but despite the numerous injuries, manager Erik ten Hag did not call upon under-fire defender Harry Maguire.
“Maguire did not hang around long afterward and was spotted leaving the tunnel and exiting the stadium within 15 minutes of the match completion.”
How will ETH react?
Maguire was stripped of the captain’s armband over the summer which highlighted his reduced status in the squad and things are not expected to improve despite Ten Hag’s public statements of support.
He was the subject of intense criticism during the international break with his mother and national team manager speaking out about the situation.
Under-fire Maguire involved in yet another controversy?
Cristiano Ronaldo had pulled a similar stunt but that was after he refused to come on as a substitute. It will be interesting to see if there is any major fall-out from this latest episode concerning the England international.
As per the article, Maguire left Old Trafford within 15 minutes of the final whistle and it could mean that the 30-year-old missed the dressing room inquest post-game.
Maguire has seen just 23 minutes of playing time for the Red Devils so far this campaign, which came in the defeat to Arsenal.
