‘The Worst Captain Ever’ – Fans Trolls Maguire As De Bruyne Destroys Manchester United

Harry Maguire was mocked mercilessly on social media following another more poor performance by the Manchester United captain in Sunday’s Manchester derby loss.

Man City won 4-1 at the Etihad to maintain a six-point lead over Liverpool at the top of the league, despite Jurgen Klopp’s side having a game in hand. 

Kevin de Bruyne was without a doubt the hero of the show for City, as he scored a hat trick. He scored City’s first two goals and assisted Riyad Mahrez on City’s third.

There was certainly no mistake who the match’s failure was, as Manchester United captain Maguire labored tremendously for his team. For City’s second and third goals, he was at fault.

Maguire curiously allowed De Bruyne’s second on 28 minutes, which restored City’s advantage following Jadon Sancho’s equalizer, to slide through his legs when he could have cleared it.


Maguire was also booked for a violent tackle, which led to him being criticized on social media.

This season, there has been much discussion on whether Maguire should be stripped of his captaincy due to his bad leadership and even worse performances.

Maguire, as previously said, was at fault for both City’s second and third goals. Some believe he could have done a better job of stopping Mahrez.

And, of course, supporters brought up Maguire’s enormous transfer fee, with Manchester United paying a world record £80 million for a defender in 2019 to sign him from Leicester.
