Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has received a backlash from club legend, Gary Neville. The latter advised the England center-back to seek a psychologist to help him regain his confidence and form on the pitch.
Maguire has recently been criticized on different occasions for his defensive errors at both club and country levels.
Despite being Man United captain, Maguire has found himself warming the bench for the club under new manager Erik ten Hag.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Neville said: “I have been there myself. I gave away two really bad goals against Vasco de Gama in a World Club Championships in the early 2000s. Then six months later, went on to have a horrible tournament for England in Belgium and Holland. My pain lasted for about eight months in football terms. I was poor, lost my confidence, didn’t want the ball and didn’t show for things.

He added: “When I lost my confidence, I went and saw a psychologist to help me through those moments. I would suggest he does what I did. I did go and see my doctor at Manchester United. I did go and get a psychologist and get help. You do need external help at times.
“Harry is going through a difficult moment. But he’s a good solid character, he’s got a good family and people around him who will try and help him. It’s a tough period for Harry, there’s no getting away from that. But there’s nothing you can do other than show up, try your best and not give in.”
