Maguire: Manchester United’s criticism is rooted in jealousy

Sun 08 November 2020 | 10:50

Manchester United defender believes that criticism toward his team in the recent weeks is not relevant to how they play.

After two consecutive defeats against

Arsenal

and Basaksehir, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team managed to win

Everton

in their Saturday Premier League clash. The 3-1 victory over Everton lift some of the pressure which was building on the team especially after the embarrassing defeat against the Turkish side. The team was about to write history by suffering the worst start of the Premier League season for

Man United

but the crucial victory avoided the unpleasant record and provided breathing space for the Red Devils to pursue their Premier League dreams in the current season although they are still in the bottom half of the table. In a post- match interview

Harry Maguire

has spoken about the team’s performance and recent criticisms toward the club.

“At this club one thing I’ve noticed in my time here – I’ve been here a year and a half – is we are the most talked-about club in the world,

“Why? Because we are the biggest club in the world. People don’t want us to do well. Why? Probably because of the success we’ve had in the past.

“We have to live up to that, we have to react to it and don’t let the negatives get into our bubble inside the training ground. Sometimes it is difficult for the lads.

“We reacted well to two poor results. We felt we were on the right track after Leipzig (a 5-0 win) and we let ourselves down against Arsenal (last Sunday).

“It wasn’t good enough as a performance. In the week again we gave them a soft goal and found it too hard to create chances to come back.

“We knew this was an important game to get three points. We reacted well but it is only a start.”
