Harry Maguire

, current captain of

Manchester United

. The English international is having one of his toughest seasons so far. Defensively,

Manchester United

is in big trouble and it is not only about maguire.

Manchester United

suffered their first defeat at the Champions League against the turkish side,

Basaksehir

.

Ole

is under heavy pressure but has not lost faith in

Maguire

yet.

Robin Van Persie

the former Manchester United player says that Maguire needs to bring more to the team and work on his contribution.

"Everyone is talking about

Maguire

being fantastic on the ball, so far he’s not been fantastic on the ball going forward with his passing but that’s not only down to him," Van Persie said on BT Sport.

"Overall, in some situations - the team is not well positioned. You see

Fred

coming to take on the ball from the centre-back places - he should not do that, Maguire should do that - he should play in a zone higher up the pitch where it’s more difficult to play but it gives people more options to play.

"Forward players should play as high as possible. It’s not clicking because the positioning of the players is not right."
