Manchester United defender, Erik ten Hag has come out to provide an update to Harry Maguire’s situation. This is coming as the defender is linked with a move to West Ham, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, taking the captain armband off the English CB was nothing against Maguire, and he just had to make a decision in the best interest of the team.
Erik added that Harry must be ready to fight for a starting position because only the best can play.
His words, “It’s nothing against Harry, it was an advantage of the team. Then you make the decision,”
“But I will not say that Harry isn’t part of this group. He has to fight for his position. He is a very good centre-back, and I believe in the potential of Harry Maguire. It’s just that he has to prove himself and fight his way into the team. It’s up to him, and I think he can do it.”
“Exactly. When you are at Man United you have to fight for your position and bring your skills in and prove you are the best for the team, and contribute the most.”
“See his competition. It’s tough when you’re competing with Rapha Varane and Victor Lindelof. It’s huge competition,”
“That has nothing to do with the belief. I have often chosen a player ahead of Harry, that’s true. But that says nothing about me not believing in him. He has to show he is better for the team than Rapha or Victor. I think that’s a normal situation in top football.”
