Newly signed Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana has expressed displeasure with Harry Maguire’s display during their 3-2 loss to Dortmund earlier today.
Maguire was stripped of the captaincy armband and given to Bruno Fernandez with the hope that he would improve his form, however, the centre-back is showing no sign of improving yet.
He was also dropped from the Red Devil’s starting XI, with manager Erik ten Hag pairing Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane in the centre-back.
During the friendly game at the Allegiant Stadium, Nevada, the 31-year-old gave the ball away in a sloppy moment in the second half forcing Onana into a save. The Cameroonian quickly rushed to let Maguire know about it and berated him.
Although it was Christian Eriksen that technically lost the ball possession, Maguire’s decision to play a short pass to him was what angered the keeper.
At the end of the game, Ten Hag expressed anger over United’s second-half performance, accusing them of breaking his rules.
‘The first hour was good, performed well, playing as a team, a lot of dynamism, good pressing, so it was really enjoyable to see and that is what I wanted to say to the team at half-time,’ said Ten Hag.
‘And then all of sudden they gave away two goals – and they were really giveaways! So that was already annoying.
‘But the last half-an-hour, that was bad. That was a poor performance. Didn’t follow the rules at all. Not in pressing, not in building up and not in attacking.
‘So there were 11 individuals finally on the pitch and that wasn’t good at all.’
