Man Utd boss on Maguire boos: ‘It won’t happen with the Red Army’



Ralf Rangnick assures Harry Maguire that he won’t be booed by his own supporters at the weekend when Man Utd host Leicester City.

The Red Devils captain has had a poor season for Man Utd, as have a lot of other players in Rangnick’s squad, but the former Sheffield United centre-back has come in for more stick than most.

As skipper he has also taken reponsibility for the performance of the team as a whole with Man Utd currently sitting in a disappointing sixth position in the Premier League.

Despite being one of England’s better players over the last few years, Maguire was weirdly booed at Wembley during England’s 3-0 victory over the Ivory Coast on Tuesday.

Speaking about the incident at a press conference on Friday, Rangnick said: “(Spoken?) Not yet, but I speak regularly since I’m here he knows my position towards him, he’s been a very valuable player for the team and the club, the captain.

“I didn’t understand what happened at Wembley, it won’t happen in our stadium with the Red Army. He’s been playing well for Manchester United and England in the last couple of years. Gareth Southgate said something after the game and Harry Kane.

“I didn’t watch the game but I heard what had happened after they announced the starting line up. Difficult to understand.”

When asked if there was a message to Man Utd fans over the incident, Rangnick added: “I don’t speak to them in person but I’m pretty sure it won’t happen in our stadium. For it to happen in an international game is unusual.”

On why Maguire has become such a target, Rangnick continued: “I don’t think this is a personal thing, it hasn’t anything to do with Harry himself, we know there are one or two players who have been criticised in the last few months, for example, Fred, a very important player for this team, playing regularly for the team and Brazil, I watched his game and he did well.

“Maybe it’s still got to do with the high expectations around this club and people tend to compare with former players and legends. Fred, Scotty and Harry are important players and players with the right attitude.”
