When asked about Harry Maguire’s poor form for Man United and whether he could be benched against Brighton, Ralf Rangnick said: “I think after he came back after his injury he did extremely well he had a very good performance against West Ham.
“In the last two games he had some weaker moments both against Southampton and when we conceded the goal against Burnley.
“But again, he is our captain and I don’t see any reason to change that. He is also a player who has to develop and get better like all the other players.”
“The way we playing now is new to him, also because in the English national team he is used to playing in a back three and here at Manchester United in a back four, but still not being as proactive with that kind of defense when we try and be on the front foot trying to defend.
“This is something new to him and it will take some time for him to get used to that and adjusted to that and this is what I can say to that.”
Maguire has made inexcusable errors in recent games for United, which have absolutely infuriated fans. But it looks like Rangnick is sticking with his captain and will continue playing him regularly going forward.
