“What a joke”, “Shows the levels”: Sky Sports’ “ridiculous” verdict has many Man Utd fans fuming


Having arrived for a world-record fee for a defender last summer, there was surely massive expectation on the shoulders of Harry Maguire when he joined Manchester United.

The England international had joined a team that had conceded 54 goals in the Premier League last season – the second-worst record out of the top-ten, with only West Ham letting in more.

And over these past few months in particular, Maguire has certainly begun to show signs of why United splashed the cash to bring him to Old Trafford. As per Whoscored, he has averaged 1.1 tackles and 1.8 interceptions per game in the top-flight this season, with his 7.12 average match rating good enough to put him fifth amongst all of his teammates.

A report from Sky Sports labelled the former Leicester defender as United’s ‘MVP’ this season, and after hearing about it, fans of the Manchester side took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.

A couple of fans put forward Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s name into the conversation for the club’s MVP award, with one supporter calling him an “absolute rock”.

Had someone like Marcus Rashford stayed fully fit for the season and wasn’t burdened by injuries, then there’s a real argument that he would have been the outstanding candidate to be named United’s MVP.

Is Harry Maguire Man Utd’s MVP this season?





In fact, even despite arriving in January, Bruno Fernandes showed that in the short time he took to the pitch at Old Trafford that he can take the side to the next level, and had the season not been postponed, may have even fired United to the top-four places.

But, with those caveats, Maguire certainly isn’t the worst choice in the world to be considered the club’s MVP.
