Harry Maguire defended by England teammate after viral training clip

Tyrone Mings has come to the defence of Manchester United defender following viral clip of a training drill.

During the international break, some footage from


training was shared online of the team doing a Rondo drill. The video clip went viral on social media and

Harry Maguire

was ridiculed.

Aston Villa

defender Mings in response to fans' comments said to English press:

"If I were in Harry’s shoes and I’d been such a good servant to the national team in terms of the stuff that happened in Russia, and the amount of games that he’s played and the player he is, and I missed a couple of games through injury but then I was fit, I’d like to think there would be a level of loyalty or credit in the bank still that would allow me to at least come back.

“I fully understand the decision the manager made in the summer and I actually can agree with it.

“He comes under a lot of scrutiny, a lot of it misplaced at times because people are going on like the team is actually fully functioning and Harry is the weak link, which I don’t think is fair whatsoever.

"As a centre-back your mistakes are always highlighted — that’s just the territory, the position you play in, so that is what we accept — but I don’t think it has affected Harry. He is a great guy, a great character, a great leader and his service to the national team has been unbelievable really.”

he added.

“Whatever is happening at club level, the manager and the players here [with England] make it really easy to leave it at the door and come into a whole new environment, with different faces, voices and stimulus.

"That’s probably why you see players sometimes playing differently for the national team than they do at club level, because it is a whole different world really. He’s doing well.”
