The England international has had a difficult start to the new season, starting with him being stripped of the club captaincy. Maguire played very little and just witnessed Brighton destroy MU to win 3-1 at Old Trafford.
This defeat has created a bad start to the new season for Man United, they are languishing in the middle of the Premier League table and are about to have a tough test against Bayern and Harry Kane in C1.
Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez were both in poor form against The Seagulls and were said to have argued in the dressing room after the match.
Regardless of the veracity of that information, former Chelsea star Andy Townsend believes Ten Hag should recall Maguire: “At the weekend, Man United played terribly at the back, didn’t they? Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof are who I call the No. 2 midfielder.”
“I don’t think they are natural leaders, I think they need to be talked to and coaxed during matches. This is the perfect combination for Harry Maguire to return to Man United’s defense. He understands Harry Kane.”
