Man Utd captain Harry Maguire can copy old Nemanja Vidic tactic to avoid wasting faltering profession | Football | Sport


Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire can copy Red Devils’ legend Nemanja Vidic by undertaking more training while he’s out of the primary team to avoid wasting his profession at Old Trafford. The England international has been badly out of form through the last 12 months and has lost his place in Erik ten Hag’s starting XI in recent weeks to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. 

Maguire began United’s first two games this season but was heavily criticised for his performances through the 2-1 opening day defeat to Brighton and the dire 4-0 loss away to Brentford. He was dropped following the disastrous result on the Gtech Community Stadium and is yet to regain his place within the Premier League, along with his only starts coming within the Europa League and for England. 

Nevertheless, the 29-year-old could now follow the lead of former United skipper Vidic by undertaking more training with the intention to get himself back into the side. The anecdote was shared by former Old Trafford hero Patrice Evra who spoke concerning the time the Serbian asked Sir Alex Ferguson for time to place in additional hours at Carrington during a run of poor form.

“The players need to be honest with themselves, their teammates, the manager and say they were scared they usually bottled it (vs City),” he explained. “They didn’t consider within the plan they usually should admit it. Afterwards, the manager will know which players he can go to war with again.

“If no one is honest with themselves after this game we’re in big trouble. In the event that they start to search out excuses, I will be apprehensive that we’ll be right back to where we were initially of the season. It’s all about honesty. We’re fighting for the highest 4, but we can have to fight for each ball.”
