Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen believes Harry Maguire’s time on the membership is coming to an finish.
As an costly recruit many will need to level out how a lot Maguire price United, however they’re fast to neglect that the England centre-back carried out properly in his first season at Outdated Trafford.
Maguire was a way more composed determine then and I can nonetheless keep in mind followers complaining about him lacking the Europa League closing in 2021, which we misplaced to Villarreal on penalties.
It goes with out saying that final season was a catastrophe for everybody at United, however Maguire was one of many worst offenders. He hasn’t been capable of recuperate from that and Erik ten Hag’s arrival led to his exclusion from the beginning line-up.
Maguire has made 15 appearances within the Premier League this season, which is 15 lower than his managed on the finish of final time period.
In flip, Meulensteen thinks Maguire ought to search for a brand new membership this summer time.
“I nonetheless suppose the again line must be addressed,” Meulensteen advised Manchester United’s official Scandinavian supporter’s membership.
“It’s very clear that he (ten Hag) fancies Lisandro Martinez – which clearly is nice as a result of he’s been a unbelievable defender to this point, he’s a winner, he’s a competitor.
“Within the left-back place he’s obtained just a few choices there, clearly, he’s obtained Luke Shaw there. As for the opposite centre-back, he’s performed a variety of Raphael Varane however he’s clearly older, getting on. He’s an skilled, serial winner who is aware of what it’s. However very damage inclined, so I’d additionally search for one other one [centre-back].
“I don’t suppose Harry Maguire is the reply, and if I used to be Harry I’d myself search for elsewhere.
“The appropriate-hand aspect with Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Diogo Dalot, two fully totally different right-backs: one provides much more going ahead, the opposite is superb at defending. However at this second in time, you want gamers that may do each.”
Loads will rely on whether or not there’s vital curiosity in Maguire on the finish of the season. Absolutely one of many mid desk Premier League sides will need to take a punt on him?
