It looks like it’s turning into a weekly thing for Manchester United captain Harry Maguire as fans and former Manchester City midfielder Nigel De Jong criticized the English defender.
Bought for a record £ 85 million fee from Leicester City, a lot is expected of the former Hull City defender, but never consistent.
After making repeated scoring mistakes for Manchester United in recent poor form, Maguire was again to blame for Atalanta’s second goal by playing over Duvan Zapata, who scored the hosts’ second goal before the draw at Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury time.
Maguire again. Smh. Exposing himself every week now. Instead of stepping forward, his tendency is always to step back, ” De Jong tweeted.
The former Dutch midfielder was joined by many fans who questioned the manager’s decision to always play as captain ahead of Eric Baily of the Ivory Coast.
Cristiano Ronaldo, for his part, admitted that Manchester United had “a bit of luck” after saving a point against Atalanta.
“It was a difficult game, I know that when we play in Bergamo it is always difficult, but we believe until the end and I am very happy,” he said.
‘We never give up, we believe until the end, it’s a good result for us. The beginning was hard, we knew that Atalanta would put a lot of pressure, he has a fantastic coach, when he played for Juventus it was always difficult to play against them.
“We were a bit lucky in the end, but that’s football. We have to keep improving, we have different players, different systems, we have to adapt to each other, but it will take time. we have time to improve and be better. ‘
