This alone has seen many of the goals scored by the Red Devils cancelled in their games by clumsy equalizers sponsored by Harry Maguire errors.

Indeed he remains one player, every Man United fan would love to see spend most of his time at United on the bench while the more conscious players take on game time.

Following Erik Ten Hag’s arrival, there are expected to be many players leaving the squad, with Paul Pogba already talking to Juventus and Paris Saint German.

It’s expected that Maguire could be one of the players to use the exit door but it all depends on what Erik Ten Hag’s project looks like.

Speaking in a recent interview, Ten Hag dropped a major hint on what future could be holding for Maguire.

“I have seen the players although we are yet to have out first training session together,” Ten Hag said.

“I have even before now been watching some of the players and I know they are of good classes. There are work to be done and am ready.

“I am yet to make decision on who is staying or leaving but I am sure I will know what to do after few training sessions with the squad.”

Asked if he has any specific need for Harry Maguire, Ten Hag continued, “Every player in the team is an important player in one way or the other.

“Maguire may have made errors but he is still a part of the team and we can do what we can with him which we can only decide after few sessions.

“I have spoken with some persons in the team and we are on the right track. We will do what’s needed to do.”
