Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has finally opened up on the bomb threat he suffered at his home in between the season.
Cheshire Police opened an investigation into the incident in April after a bomb was found in the player’s home; the move coming after he was criticized for his below per display.
Obviously I’m in a position where I’m going to be criticized. United paid a large sum of money for me and I totally accept criticism when we concede goals or make mistakes,” Maguire said while on national team duty with England.
“But there is a line where we are human beings. I do 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 is more about family.
“My wife Fern, I’m just happy my kids are at an age where they don’t read things and see things on the news. If my kids were older, they could see things and go to school and people are speaking about it. That is when it affects you a little bit more.
“United are one of the most loved clubs in the world and also one of the most hated in the world. We’re under the most scrutiny.”
