‘He’s going to prove critics wrong’: Solskjaer defends Maguire from heavy criticism

When asked about his thoughts on the criticism Harry Maguire has been getting lately, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Harry [Maguire], as Gareth rightly said, he’s not one to hide on the treatment table or try to find any excuse to sit out games.

“His family, his club we are all very happy with him and all back him and he’s such a top professional and he’s going to prove critics wrong.

“The so-called experts have their opinions and that’s their job to put their opinion, that’s not something we have to worry too much about. As a true example of a Man United player, Harry is always there for his team and his country.”

The gaffer gave a response when asked whether he wants to take away the captaincy from Maguire, adding: “For me, no I’ve not considered taking any captain’s armband away from him. He’s been an absolute stalwart for us on and off the pitch since he came in."

The Man United captain has been heavily criticized by Roy Keane recently for his poor performances over the last few months. The former United midfielder also lambasted his celebration after scoring against Albana, deeming it 'embarrassing'.

Maguire enjoyed a pretty good international break with England, scoring 2 goals in as many games and also setting the record for most goals scored by an English centre-back in history.

The Englishman is tipped to start for United against Watford, but has to produce an emphatic performance to keep his doubters silenced.
