Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira has accused the media of not showing respect to Manchester United captain Harry Maguire.

Maguire has come under intense scrutiny from the media, pundits and fans, something Vieira believes is unjust.

“Sometimes you guys [the media] show a lack of respect to Maguire and to some of the players who have been selected in the national team,” Vieira said.

“Maguire is a top player who has a really strong character. Sometimes you can play well, and sometimes you can play badly, but that doesn’t take away the quality that he has and the personality that he has.

“The England national team will benefit from that.”
