Former Manchester United star Paul Parker has slammed Manchester United captain Harry Maguire for his poor performance in the 2-2 Champions League draw against Atalanta.

According to Parker, Manchester United were poor defensively and he blamed Maguire for Atalanta’s second goal.

“Manchester United can’t carry on like this. Defensively they are very, very poor,” Parker told Eurosport.

“Harry Maguire was shocking against Atalanta and was at fault for their second goal.

“It’s clear to anyone out there, whether you’re a United fan or a football fan, if you watch United you would turn around and say they’ve been saved by Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He was lucky to hit double figure touches on the ball, but when he scores two goals you can’t really complain.

“Defensively United were awful and they are weak in midfield with and without the ball. The only guarantee is that Ronaldo will get you a late goal and Bruno Fernandes will create.”
