Maguire reacting to fans’ criticism on Football Daily TV stated that he features for the team in every game because he is good at what he does. He added that there is a reason why he has always been selected by the club manager.

“I wouldn’t be playing every game for Manchester United in the starting eleven if I’d been playing bad every game or not playing well enough. There’s a reason why both managers have put me in the starting eleven every game,” he said.

Angered by Maguire’s response, fans have continued to lampoon the United captain calling him all sorts of names on Twitter.

Fred Royer, describing the response of Maguire as worse to assume he was good, noted that the reason the player features for United in every game is that the people who spent huge funds to bring him to the club would want to see him play.
