“it’s not Maguire’s fault that he’s not good for Man Utd; Richard Keys defends the club captain amid struggles.

Richard Keys has come to Harry Maguire’s defence saying it’s “not his fault he’s not good enough” for Manchester United.

Maguire has been a lightning rod for criticism recently as United have stuttered and stumbled in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League. 

And although the entire team played poorly on Tuesday night’s 4-0 defeat to Liverpool, Maguire once again bore the brunt of supporter anger.

The 29-year-old could have done better for two of Liverpool’s four goals, including the opener when he was caught out of position as Luis Diaz made it 1-0. 

Maguire tried to press Sadio Mane almost in his own half, allowing Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah to run through, with Salah setting up Diaz to score.

“I don’t think there’s any point in any of us any further destroying Manchester United,” he said. 

“Those that are there and wearing the jersey, you could argue it’s not necessarily their fault. None of us would have missed the opportunity given that same chance.

“It’s not Harry Maguire’s fault that he’s not good enough. It’s not Harry Maguire’s fault that he’s been over-promoted. Somebody has got to come along now, have a look and really start again, because they were way off last night, weren’t they?”

Keys’ view chimed somewhat differently with that of Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane, who was scathing in his assessment of Maguire’s performance.

“Defensively, we’re trying to help Maguire out, before the match trying to give out PR, the last goal Maguire – his passing and his defending is not acceptable, not good enough for Man United,” Kean said.

“We’re going to use that word again, talk about a rebuilding job at Man United. They have to get lads in, who are first of all, decent lads, good quality pros, talented to try and compete. Man United now fifth or sixth in the league, Man United fifth or sixth in the league? Unbelievable.”
