87 million euros, that’s how much Manchester United paid to Leicester last summer for Maguire. The Englishman thus dethroned Virgil van Dijk as the most expensive defender ever. Maguire became the captain of United and played the most minutes of all players in the Premier League. He had to include the criticism for his sometimes rather mediocre footplay.
Also on Wednesday evening, in the Nations League match against Denmark, that foot game played tricks on the defender. Maguire let a simple control jump too far from the foot, wanted to correct his mistake and in the process kicked full on Kasper Dolberg’s foot. A second yellow card was his share. The English eventually lost 0-1.
“This match perfectly sums up his last weeks,” said Gary Neville in the studio Sky Sports. It is indeed not going well at Manchester United – think of the 1-6 defeat against Tottenham – but the reason why Maguire was not there in the previous international period of the English still haunts him.
The Englishman was involved in a brawl in Myokonos at the end of August. The Greek court found him guilty of aggravated assault, attempted bribery, violence against officers and insulting officials in office. In the end, he did not have to serve his 21-month prison sentence because it was his first conviction.
Maguire himself stated afterwards that his sister was initially harassed and that he was then stopped by plainclothes officers who allegedly attacked him. “I’m not going to apologize because I have a clear conscience. I do regret that the supporters and the club had to endure all this ”, it sounded at the BBC.
