‘Get out of Man U’, a grim reaper… Sympathy is gone￼
It is Harry Maguire (Manchester United) who showed the worst defensive power that urged him to transfer more.
Maguire started in the second leg of the 2022-23 European Football Federation Europa League (UEL) quarterfinals held at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Seville, Spain on the morning of the 21st (Korean time).
It was a special match with the captain wearing the armband. After drawing the first leg 1-1, they needed a win in the second leg. Since there is no away goal system, it was a simple game to advance to the semifinals with a win, whether 1-0 or 2-1.
However, he showed a performance close to a horror show and tasted the pain of a 0-3 defeat. In particular, the goal was conceded in the 8th minute of the first half, but the situation itself was a mess, with Eric Lamela staring blankly at the pass to Yusuf en-Nesiri. It was also difficult to control the ball flying over his head when he allowed Loic Bade in the second minute.
Under the circumstances, full-time selection was natural. With Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane leaving due to injuries, Maguire took charge of Victor Lindelof and central defense, but was completely pushed back by Sevilla’s momentum.
Many British media criticized Maguire. The general newspaper ‘Express’ said, ‘Maguire is evaluated as a person to be sold in the summer transfer market, such as Lindelof, Scott McTominay, Fred, Anthony Martial, and Jadon Sancho.’ It must have been a game that gave me an opportunity.” 안전놀이터
Another general magazine, ‘Daily Mail’, said, ‘Maguire played with the captain’s armband, but was too passive. Losing concentration and giving up possession of the ball, he gave up a goal to N-Nesiri. It would have been better to ask for advice (on the bench) and focus on the basics of defense,” he said, and was criticized for showing his skills rather than being a top-class defender.
In particular, when Baade scored an extra goal, he pointed out that the fans criticized him for pushing Marcel Sabitzer, which was pointed out as the cause of Martial’s injury in defending a corner kick, and causing a loss to the team’s strength.
In the comments of the article, primary color criticism poured in. “I hope you get out of Manchester United soon,” or “Is the red uniform an ornament?” and “Ten Hagh’s mistake was to fill Maguire with the captain’s armband,” pointed out. In addition, on social network services (SNS), there were also articles such as “There has never been a player I dislike so much” and “Even a scarecrow does not defend like Maguire.”
Maguire has signed a contract with Manchester United until June 2025, but rumors of a transfer have already spread due to his declining ability. The biggest crisis came to his football life.
