Maguire blames De Gea for his poor form
Harry Maguire, the captain of Manchester United, is blaming David De Gea's poor communication and unwillingness to come off his line for his (Maguire's) subpar performance at Old Trafford over the past 12 months.
After the team's defeats to Brentford and Brighton, Erik ten Hag decided to remove England international Harry Maguire from the starting lineup for Manchester United.
The Red Devils have won all four league games with Maguire sitting on the sidelines since Ten Hag decided to start new signing Lisandro Martinez alongside Raphael Varane.
Last season, the 29-year-old defender received harsh criticism from fans as the Red Devils' captain took the brunt of their anger at seeing their team finish sixth.
However, ESPN reports that Maguire believes his teammates and coaches have let him down by not using his strengths.
According to the report, Maguire feels most ‘frustrated’ with goalkeeper De Gea.
The Spanish number one goalkeeper has also been blamed for his inability to rush off his line and that, coupled with Maguire’s lack of pace, has given opponents plenty of room to play in behind United’s defence.
Added to that, the England international feels De Gea’s lack of communication has contributed to his poor form.
