Harry Maguire Has My Full Support Says England Boss Gareth Southgate

England boss Gareth Southgate says Harry Maguire has his “full support” despite the Manchester United captain’s poor display and sending off in the 1-0 Nations League defeat by Denmark.

Maguire was booked early on before being shown a second yellow after 31 minutes when he fouled Kasper Dolberg.

The defender has struggled for form since his arrest in Greece in August.

“He’s having a difficult period and in these periods you learn a lot about yourself,” said Southgate.

“You learn who’s there for you in those difficult times. He’ll come through it, he’ll be a better player and a stronger man for it.

“To go down to 10 men is costly for the team, but we fully back him, we fully support him.”

Former Premier League striker Chris Sutton blamed Maguire’s sending off for England’s defeat and said the 27-year-old will need to “show real character” to rediscover his best form.

“Harry Maguire has had a horrible, horrible start to the season,” Sutton said. “I really feel for him – his confidence is at such a low ebb.

“But we can’t defend Maguire because it was brainless after the first yellow card. The reason they lost the game was because Maguire had a couple of mad moments.

“Maguire’s confidence is just shot to bits at the moment and it’s horrible to see because I do think he’s a really talented footballer and a good footballer but this season he has been woeful and he’s going to have to show real character to come back.”
