Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has apparently upset his team-mates by openly criticising their mistakes on the pitch despite struggling with his own form this season. Maguire joined the Red Devils from Leicester City in August 2019 and was appointed captain by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United shelled out £80million to prise the England international away from the Foxes as they set a new world record transfer fee for a defender. And he has been a key part of the United backline ever since.
But the star has been slammed for his displays at times and his performances have been inconsistent this season.
Maguire came under the spotlight last month as the 13-times Premier League champions surrendered leads against Burnley and Southampton.
And, according to the Daily Mail, some United players are not happy about how the 28-year-old has reacted to their blunders and have also taken exception to what he has told the media.
Maguire could only muster a place on the bench for United’s Premier League stalemate against Watford last weekend.

Last month, reports suggested that Maguire could be replaced as United skipper.
But Rangnick was quick to back the former Hull City ace on that occasion.
“I think when he came back after his injury he did extremely well,” Rangnick said. “He had a very good performance, a very good game against West Ham.
“In the past two games, yeah he had some weaker moments, against Southampton and when we conceded the goal at Burnley – but he’s our captain and I don’t see any reason to change that.
