The talk sport interview didn't have anything controversial.

Has Ten Hag identified the problem and dealt with it by dropping Maguire, favouring a defensive partnership of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, or is Maguire simply a victim of circumstance?

"Harry needs pace around him, but he hasn't had that," a source close to Maguire told ESPN. "If you put [Man City's] Ruben Dias in the United defence and Harry in the City back-four, Dias would struggle and Harry would thrive. Harry hasn't had a good 12 months, but he hasn't been helped by those around him -- coaches or players -- so it's inevitable that his confidence and form have suffered."

Sources have said that Maguire's frustrations with goalkeeper David de Gea's communication and reluctance to defend further away from his goal-line were also a factor in the overall malaise in defence last season. That issue has been improved by Argentina defender Martinez's arrival from Ajax and his ability to communicate with, and instruct, De Gea in Spanish.

He's not taking responsibility. It's more than confidence, he can't play a high line. He got exposed the other night against Italy within the first 5 mins. Italy's first ball in behind did him. He needs to play in an old fashioned defensive team that sits deep so there's no threat in behind.

It's not just his fault tbf, it's the recruitment team as well cos he was a backwards signing.

He should join Jose at Roma. He'd look solid in serie a. But as a high profile English player that has played in the euro final he'll think he belongs at a top club in the Prem.

Surrounding the cart horse with polo ponies won’t turn the cart horse into a polo pony. He’ll still be a cart horse...

Guardian right on the money: "...a display of terribly poignant, terribly muddled defending by Harry Maguire"
