In an effort to secure his spot in England’s starting team, Manchester United‘s Harry Maguire won’t receive more playtime from Erik ten Hag prior to the World Cup (WC) 2022.
Maguire is still an important player in Manchester’s squad
Although Maguire is destined to reach England’s WC roster, it is less likely that he’ll begin for Southgate’s side in Qatar given his absence of recent action for MU. The center-back, who was a key component in England’s journey to the Euro final in the year of 2020, has struggled at United for the larger part of this season after Ten Hag replaced him with Varane due to his poor performance.
Varane’s most recent injury suffered against Chelsea gave Maguire the opportunity to take Varane’s spot for Man Utd’s PL (Premier League) victory versus West Ham United last week. But Ten Hag selected Lindelof for the win in the EL (Europe League) on Thursday against Real Sociedad. Ten Hag declined to guarantee that Maguire will play an important role in the squad before the WC in his remarks prior to Devils’ trip to Aston Villa at weekends.
Maguire’s performance with MU’s other defenders is quite excellent
Ten Hag said he needs to consider it. Additionally, he must meet with Aston Villa, which will be challenging given that they are unaware that a new manager has been hired. Thus, he must examine and evaluate that team before letting them make a decision. But as he just mentioned, Licha and Victor performed admirably together in a number of other games, as did Licha and Maguire on Sunday versus West Ham United: West Ham was not able to score a single goal.
He made the decision. There’s nothing to oppose the other when he selects one. If Maguire sits out of United’s games versus Aston Villa or Fulham prior to the WC’s beginning on 20th of Novermber, he could only have made one PL start in the previous three months.
Erik asserts that they must triumph as Manchester United, without a doubt, and he wishes for their success as well as for the England’s national team’s manager to choose as many MU players as possible. He continued by saying that because of their outstanding team, they have a great opportunity to win the WC. They are therefore unquestionably among the favorites for the Qatar’s WC 2022 in his opinion.
