Harry Maguire, the underperforming center back for Manchester United, may never play for the Red Devils again, according to former West Ham United forward Frank McAvennie.
Since moving to Manchester United from Leicester City in 2019, Maguire’s tenure there has not been smooth.
Before manager Erik ten Hag joined the team last year, the England international was a consistent starter and club captain.
Maguire was rapidly passed by people like Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, and Victor Lindelof in the pecking order.
The 30-year-old, who lost his captaincy to Bruno Fernandes this summer, was only able to make 31 appearances in all competitions last year, with just 11 of them being starts.
He was also rumored to be moving to West Ham United for £30 million, but the deal never materialized.
Regarding Maguire’s predicament, McAvenni said that the player has to grow and is not a suitable fit for Man United.
He must endure this difficult period. He has to mature and learn to accept both the good and the bad, according to McAvennie, who spoke to Football Insider.
“He is not a bad player, but he is not a good player for Man United, and I do not think he will play for Man United again.”
“I don’t understand why he didn’t want to leave,” he continued. He might have traveled and rebuilt his confidence, but he needs to play.
