Harry Maguire has conceded that the Red Devils are betraying their fans.
Ralf Rangnick’s boys have struggled to put up strong performances since the German took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and are currently seventh in the rankings.
Man United are only four points behind Arsenal who are fourth on the log with a game in hand, but Maguire has confessed that the Red Devils’ recent performances have been unacceptable.
“The most important thing for us is the fans. We are letting them down. The support at Old Trafford and at away games is still unbelievable. United have a history of coming out fighting – and that’s exactly what we will do. We have to!,” Maguire said, as quoted by The Mirror.
“This team finished second last year and we now have a bigger and better squad, so we have to show the right attitude. We’ve got big players in the team – leaders. I’m sick of repeating myself, but it can’t continue like this. We need to go on a proper run, starting Monday.
“I’m the captain and leader in the dressing room. I’ve had private conversations with the players and the management – and they will remain private. But make no mistake about it, I’m here for the fight – and I know my teammates are. I expect them to be – and if they’re not then there’s something wrong.”
Man United will take a break from EPL action on Monday night to face Aston Villa in the FA Cup third round.
