A bomb threat has now been made to Manchester United captain Harry Maguire’s residence. Cheshire Police were notified of the concern and investigated the English international’s house on Thursday afternoon. With his fiancee, Fern Hawkins, Maguire shares two kids. The incident happens mere two days after the club’s 1-0 setback to Liverpool.
A spokesperson for Harry Maguire revealed that a warning was given to the Manchester United captain’s house, and also that the incident is being examined by officials as reported by BR Football. Citing an unknown warning, police were called to Maguire’s house, and officials are now on the hunt for the offender of the supposed bomb threat. The incident happens just days after Maguire’s Manchester United side was crushed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.
Manchester United is on a dreadful streak of form, having just lost 4-0 to opponents Liverpool on Tuesday. Erik ten Hag has now been chosen as the club’s new permanent coach, with the Ajax coach taking the reins in the summer. Constantly, death threats are being sent to Maguire as well as the remainder of the Squad on social media, but the backdrop of this current threat has now been taken exceedingly seriously.
All over the team’s up and down year, the leader of Manchester United has been a persistent focus of criticism. Maguire, who moved Man Utd from Leicester for a record-breaking £80 million ($113 million), has appeared on 35 occasions in all games so far this season.
The Red Devils are presently at sixth place in the Premier League, three points below the fourth Tottenham and 5th Arsenal, both of which have a match in play over United. Maguire seems to have been a victim of abuse not only at Manchester United but also at their homeland in England, where he was booed by his supporters at Wembley in March.
