Man Utd: Martial’s consistency is a ‘big issue’ says Burley

Manchester United star Harry Maguire has been slammed by former Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart for his error against Bournemouth last weekend.

 

Maguire was nutmegged by Junior Stanislas in the first half of the game before the Cherries striker buried past David de Gea.

Maguire’s defending this season has come into question, following his record £80million move from Leicester last summer.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named Maguire captain earlier this season and has come out to defend him on numerous occasions.

But even United fans acknowledged Maguire’s poor performance against Bournemouth.

And it seems so did Van der Vaart.

He told Dutch TV channel Ziggo: “I think Maguire goes home every day and tells his wife: ‘I screw up, but I earn so much. They really believe I’m good’.

“I really think so, he laughs at everyone.”

It’s not the first time Van der Vaart has taken aim at Maguire.

Earlier this season, he compared Maguire’s talents to Virgil van Dijk, who he says should be valued at £300m if Maguire costs £80m.

“He can do something, but if he is worth so much money, Virgil van Dijk is worth £300million,” Van der Vaart told Ziggo Sport earlier this season.

“If I am going to play with the amateurs on Sunday afternoon.

“I can easily find three who can do this. I mean that seriously.

“A bit silly to say, but I really think so.”

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked furious with Maguire during a drinks break following Stanislas’ goal.

United went on to win the game 5-2, however, and they prepare to face Aston Villa this evening (8.15pm).
