Harry Maguire Is Still Man United Best Defender – Southgate Says As He Dumps Sancho Ahead Of International Duty

Gareth Southgate has made shocking claims ahead of the International games as he picks Harry Maguire and dumps Jadon Sancho

The England National Team manager has surprisingly hailed the ‘all-mighty’ faulty machine, Harry Maguire despite seeing how bad he was this season.

Maguire has clearly proven to be one of the worst defenders in the history of football after several errors from him led to goals against Man United.

The former Leicester City man joined Man United for a whooping sum and has since his arrival failed to impress any single Man United fan.

It’s clearly strange seeing Gareth Southgate label him the best defender in the Man United squad and worthy of making it into the National team while Jadon Sancho was ‘poor’.

Sancho on the hand was clearly one of the best individual performers in the United squad despite a bad season for the Red Devils.

“For me, Harry Maguire is still their best centre-back — I am sure the manager will have his own view of that,” Southgate said.

“For us he has been consistently, with all our data across the season, at a certain level where he would still be among our top two or three.

“The fact is that Harry and John have been our best pairing.”

Going further on Jadon Sancho and Rashford not making the squad, Southgate said; “There’s enough of a block of games at the beginning of next season that people can still play their way in [to the World Cup squad]. Of course, the closer we get, the more difficult it is.

“But they’ve got to start playing well with their club. Neither of them have really played at the end of the season.

“England is a consequence of what you’re doing at your club and you’ve got to get your club bit right.”

Really? Southgate really? 😳 ‘England is a consequence of what you’re doing at your club,’ what has Maguire done aside bringing hell on the team? 🤦
