Harry Maguire’s mother gets involved

The Man United defender’s mother took to social media to lash out at critics.

“As a mum, seeing the level of negative and abusive comments which is receiving from some fans, pundits and the media is disgraceful and totally unacceptable to any walk of life, never mind someone who works his socks off for club and country,” she said in a statement.

“I was there in the stands as usual. It’s not acceptable what’s been created over nothing.”.

“I understand that in the world of football, there are ups and downs, positive and negatives, but what Harry receives has gone far beyond football”.

“For me, seeing him go through what he’s going through is not ok. I’d hate to have to see other parents or players go through this in future, especially young boys and girls breaking through the ranks today”.
