Maguire accused of ‘checking Twitter too often’ after Man Utd games

Harry Maguire is ‘too concerned’ with social media after Manchester United games, despite the club telling him to stay away from Twitter.

The defender has lost his starting spot for United this campaign, with Erik ten Hag favouring Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.

Maguire has been booed by the Red Devils and England fans in the last 18 months, and has endured a tough time.

Despite his obvious talent, the criticism has left Maguire very low on confidence and ESPN claim he can be too focused on social media criticism after games.

United bosses have advised Maguire to stay away from social media but he finds it difficult, whether he’s played well or not.

Maguire faces a decision over his future this summer window as Ten Hag remains keen to bring in a new central defender.

The England international is well thought of at Old Trafford and Ten Hag rates Maguire’s ability on the ball.

But he’s been moved from left centre-back as Ten Hag wants a left footer in that position, meaning Maguire is up against Varane for a starting spot in the team.

West Ham showed interest in Maguire in the January transfer window but the defender chose to stay at Old Trafford.

If United can get a sizeable fee for Maguire this summer they are likely to cash in, particularly as the club is walking a Financial Fair Play tightrope.
