Manchester United defender Harry Maguire insists his performances for both Manchester United and England have been good despite the heavy criticisms he have received.

The Englishman is willing to give his all to help the club out of the mess we find ourselves this season.

Quoted by ESPN, the Manchester United centre-back said: “It’s not my decision to whether I start the next game or not. I’m unsure on that. I’m sure in a couple of weeks I’ll go back and find out.

“If you look back on my last 15-20 starts for club and country, I would be happy to sit here and say I’m really happy with my performances.

“My record under this manager [Erik ten Hag] speaks for itself. I haven’t started as many games as I like, but my win percentage when I’ve played is ridiculously high.”

Maguire continued: “Of course, there are times when I could do more and times when I could improve and help the team.

“But I’m just wanting to help the team, I’m wanting to help the team get out of this position we’re in at the moment. Hopefully, we can do that in the coming weeks.”

With both Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez injured, this could open up playing opportunities for Maguire to force his way into Ten Hag’s starting XI.
