Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic discussed what Harry Maguire would look like in a recent interview with The Athletic.
Vidic, along with Rio Ferdinand, formed one of the toughest centre-backs in Premier League history.
However, Manchester United have seen a fairly significant decline from grace since those days, with the center back being a problem area for many years now.
In an effort to improve their line of defense, the Red Devils spent a lot on Harry Maguire. And while he has shown signs of quality while with United, the England player’s standard for his club has been nothing short of awful lately.
As a result, Vidic was asked about Maguire’s recent efforts, and he had the following to say:
“Every player has a shape problem at some point in their career,” he said. “I did and Maguire is clearly not at his best this season. I think you can do a few things, and one of them is not playing every game and you’re trying to find shape again and get confidence. The coach can play him in easier games, not because there’s so much in The English Premier League, and take him out in more difficult matches.
“The player needs to feel strong and powerful on the field again, not like now where he feels that this is not happening to him. It is difficult to play well when you are under so much pressure because people are waiting for you to make a mistake. You ask me this and I respond to it. as a coach.”
Vidic was then asked if he could give Maguire one piece of advice, what it would be, and the Serb responded:
“It is not a problem if a player tells his coach that he does not feel comfortable on the pitch. If he says: ‘Give me a break, give me two weeks to regroup, train well and then play again.’ I had some terrible matches with United and needed to find peace and growth again. other”.

Harry Maguire’s latest mistake
Maguire’s fatal error came on Saturday afternoon against Everton.
The relegation-threatened team beat the Red Devils 1-0, effectively ending their already fading chances of securing a berth in the top four.
And while this wasn’t technically his fault, it was Harry Maguire who netted Anthony Gordon with a huge skew before finding his way past David de Gea.
