Harry Maguire

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has stated that the players must “take responsibility” for the club’s terrible start to the 2021-22 season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired as head coach on Sunday morning after a run of five defeats in the team’s last seven Premier League games.

Maguire, who was sent off in Saturday’s 4-1 loss at Watford, has stated that the club’s players are “extremely sad” with Solskjaer’s departure and must “take a huge responsibility” for what has happened.

“The players need to take responsibility. We are in this together. Ultimately the manager has paid the price, we are all so disappointed by that. We know we haven’t been good enough. We have spoken about that. The lads want to succeed,” Maguire told reporters.

“It has been a very hard time as players. The amount of respect we had for the boss. We’ve been on a journey together. For him to come in and talk to us yesterday was tough.

“The result on Saturday wasn’t good enough but the results of recent have not been good enough. Ole has paid the price and we have to take a big responsibility too.”

Maguire will travel with the Man United squad to Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday, but he will be suspended for Sunday’s Premier League encounter against Chelsea.
