Harry Maguire’s mum has slammed her son’s critics for their humiliating comments about her son.
The former Red Devils skipper was jeered after he scored an unfortunate own goal as England beat Scotland 3-1 in the Euro qualifying matches earlier this week.
The defender has been heavily criticised by both fans and pundits for his underwhelming performances in recent seasons.
The player’s mum, Zoe Maguire launched a scathing attack on her son’s critics as she shared a lengthy post to followers on her Instagram story on Thursday morning.
In a post on her Instagram story, Zoe Maguire wrote: “As a mum seeing the level of negative and abusive comments in which my son is receiving from some fans, pundits and the media is disgraceful and totally unacceptable to any walk of life never mind someone who works his socks off for club and country.
“I was there in the stand as usual, it’s not acceptable what’s been created, over nothing. I understand that in the football world there are ups and downs, positives and negatives but what Harry receives has gone far beyond ‘football’.
“For me seeing him go through what he’s going through is not ok. I would hate to have to see any other parents or players go through this in the future, especially the young boys and girls breaking through the ranks today.
“Harry has a massive heart and it’s a good job he’s mentally strong and can handle it as others may not be able too. I wish this sort of abuse on nobody!”
