Check Out “Let Harry Maguire depart Manchester United.” Rene Meulensteen, the former captain under Sir Alex Ferguson, agrees, admitting that he is surprised the center back even wants to stay given that it is obvious he is not part of Erik ten Hag’s plans.
Is Harry Maguire ready to move on at this point? Yes, he replied to talkSPORT.
And I’m not sure why he’s sticking put since, in the end, I believe it’s crystal apparent. The signs have been there for a while.
“Every professional and athlete wants to play. He should play. Gareth Southgate still envisions him as an England player. He already is.
I think what happened there is very weird because, if I were Harry, I would surely be knocking on Eric’s door.
I would be pleading with them to let me leave because I’m not really in their plans.
Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen also criticizes the club’s ownership situation’s delay and silence.
The Dutchman told Jim White about Rio Ferdinand’s talkSPORT interview: “Everything Rio said is spot on.
Uncertainty, no clarity. The direction? Describe the vision.
Don’t get me wrong, the Glazers have put their hand in their wallet because, correct me if I’m wrong, they’ve spent £1billion for all the other managers and are doing it again for Erik ten Hag. There are no complaints.
“But I would be glad [if the Glazers leave] because owners need a connection and affection for the club, which they don’t. Wrexham showed that people care and say, ‘This is what we’re going to do, you’re going to be part of it’, which I think Manchester United fans want.
At the close of last season, there were reports of a potential sale, and the Qataris and Sir Jim Ratcliffe were brought in. However, here we are in August, one week before the Premier League begins.
“Yes, Eric has been able to make some transfers, but we don’t know about ownership, so it’s dragging on and annoying fans.”
