Jose when he did punditry said he had begged United to sign Maguire and also praised the James signing.bman2 wrote: ↑10 months ago I’ve always thought Maguire was an ok player who got famous because he’s English (which happens a lot). But getting booed by the England fans is shitty, and he’s done well for England.
But the pundits talking about how well he played against Ivory Coast… FFS an international friendly against an African team at the business end of the season. That’s how players like English players like Maguire get overhyped in the first place.
He was quite highly regarded, even here before we signed him.
My point is he was highly rated until he joined United.
He's done well for England and he's got the talent so I think it's a confidence issue for the player. Any human would probably struggle with this tbf, although I'd want more mental strength from a 80m signing.
