“I want to fight for my place,” says Harry Maguire

Harry Maguire has said that he will fight for his place in Manchester United team.

Maguire, the former captain of Manchester United, who finds himself in a tough situation as Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane have made a strong defensive partnership in the team. Maguire, however, remains unused for many games, expressing his determination to reclaim his regular starting role.

Maguire, who arrived at Manchester United in 2019, was initially same as a improving figure in the club’s defense. His leadership qualities, commanding presence, and aerial qualities made him a starter at United. However, the arrival of Argentine defender Lisandro Martinez and the French World Cup winner Raphael Varane has added a new layer of competition in the heart of the Red Devils’ defense.


The partnership between Martinez and Varane has been nothing short of impressive. Their understanding of each other’s playing styles, communication on the pitch, and ability to read the game has solidified Manchester United’s backline. It’s their manager’s (Erik ten Hag) strategy and the players’ dedication to building chemistry. This partnership has naturally reduced Maguire’s playing time, as he watches from the bench more frequently.
