Maguire has gradually returned to his natural leader image in recent matches after a truly forgettable 2021-2022 season
Last season, all Manchester United players in all three lines were in poor form. When it comes to unnecessary goals, the Red Devils’ biggest issue is their midfield. Man United’s defense is always “slapping face” and frequently faces attacks because they have two “amateur” central midfielders.
As a result, when playing with Lindelof and Varane, Maguire is always the most chastised character, though this is not entirely England’s fault. According to Sofascore statistics, Maguire was overtaken 12 times, only 68 percent of airfights were successful, 1 red card was issued, and 1 own goal was scored.
People saw Maguire’s image again in pre-season friendlies at the hands of Erik Ten Hag, with a fiery and effective style of play similar to the 2019/2020 season. Central defender No. 5 had a fantastic game against Atletico Madrid, with a 100% successful tackle rate, 1 interception, 90% dispute, and 2 situations to relieve the siege.
Not only that, but Maguire’s presence in three friendly matches has greatly improved the attacking phase due to his ability to move the ball. Before the controlling play that Erik Ten Hag has always sought, a player like Maguire is critical.
Stability will be required, but with Ten Hag’s trust and a strong pre-season, fans may see a Maguire who isn’t as ‘comedy’ as last season. This weekend, he and his teammates will face Brighton in the first round of the Premier League, in a match that will demonstrate that the positive changes of the past are not only temporary.
Manchester United said farewell to their tenth player.
Manchester United’s revolution is still ongoing. So far, Manchester United has signed Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez. They are about to finalize the Frenkie de Jong transaction. Many names must leave in the opposite direction.
A number of players have recently left Old Trafford after their contracts expired. Coach Erik ten Hag also authorized Manchester United to make a move to release some players who are no longer available this summer.
Alex Telles is the latest player to leave Manchester United. Journalist Fabrizio Romano, in particular, confirmed: “Here we go, Alex Telles to Sevilla! Manchester United has completed a loan agreement that will last until 2023.
There is no buyout clause in this agreement. The contract is being finalized and will be signed this week.”
Telles faces stiff competition for the main kick in coach Erik ten Hag’s squad. The signing of Tyrell Malacia by Manchester United reduces Telles’ chances. In fact, this player is ineffective every time he steps onto the field.
Telles joins Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Lee Grant, Dean Henderson, Andreas Pereira, and Alvaro Fernandez as the ninth player to leave Manchester United this summer.
