‘There’s a line, I have a family’: Manchester United star Harry Maguire breaks silence on bomb threat

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire had a disastrous season as the club struggled through the competitions. United had a turbulent season where they failed to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage before finishing a disappointing sixth in the Premier League. It was yet another trophyless season for the Red Devils, who saw former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fired midway through the campaign before Ralf Rangnick took over in an interim role.

However, results did not improve for United, even under Rangnick, who publicly criticized players and exposed woes in United’s dressing room while issuing several ultimatums to management and owners to resolve the issues at the club. .

Maguire found himself the target of harsh criticism after an average campaign. While he was repeatedly slammed on social media and booed by fans on the pitch, the England defender said the ‘line’ was crossed when his family received a bomb threat for him does not give up the United captaincy.

Maguire alleged that a bomb threat was issued against his family in April this year due to his poor performance on the pitch. The England footballer said he was ready to face the criticism that comes with the pressure of playing for a club like United, but said his family’s involvement and the issuance of a warning bomb crossed the line.

“Obviously I’m in a position where I’m going to be criticized, Manchester United paid a lot of money for me, they’re one of the most loved clubs in the world and also one of the most hated in the world because well,” Maguire told reporters.

“We know that we are under the highest surveillance. I totally accept criticism when we concede goals or make mistakes, I’m big enough to accept people getting behind me and saying I can improve. There is a line where we are human beings, I have a family. People ask if it affects me. My mentality is that it doesn’t affect me too much but when it comes to bomb threats, it’s more about family,” he added.

Maguire was also booed by some of the England fans after his poor performance in England’s friendly against Ivory Coast at Wembley in March this year. The England centre-back said he was shocked by the reception from the fans as he had a great relationship with them since his debut.

“Since my debut in England the English fans have been amazing with me, I’ve had some amazing times. I’ve been in some of the biggest games. I’ve been in the biggest games in the recent history of our country,” Maguire said.

“The journey I’ve been on since my debut five years ago until now, I’ve had some amazing times with the fans, and I’m not going to let the minority, I don’t know how much it was, 10 to 20 people doing that in the Ivory Coast game to affect my relationship with the England fans, no.

“I think I was more surprised than taking it all in, I was a bit shocked to be honest. Like I said, I’ve had such a good relationship with the England supporters throughout my career with the England team. I wouldn’t say that I was hurt and upset. Obviously, I know that my family and my friends could have been affected by it but I was really more surprised. he adds.
