Maguire’s Lack Of Pace Is One Of The Reasons Why He Is Struggling

anchester United made the move to make Harry Maguire the costliest defender in the history of football due to the fact that the player had an exceptional season with Leicester City.

Things haven’t worked for the defender since he joined the club. He was given a captaincy role by former manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer. This led to intense criticism amongst some sections of the club’s fans.

One of the major reasons why Manchester United’s defender has struggled in the team is the fact that the Englishman lacks the pace to recover whenever he is dribbled by an opponent or whenever his team is caught on a counter-attacking move.

The player has not been very lucky to partner with a player who has pace. He was paired with Varane last season, but the Frenchman was not consistent due to injuries.

The Manchester United captain has been relegated to the bench after the club lost the first two competitive games that he started. The player is hoping that a strong performance for the national team will persuade Erik Ten Hag to start using him more frequently.
