Jaap Stam says Harry Maguire’s form is down to new tactics and teammates

Former Reds defender Jaap Stam believes Harry Maguire’s lack of form under Erik ten Hag at Manchester United is due to a new style of play and poor play from teammates. Following a difficult season marred by criticism, the centre-half has had a disastrous start to the new season. He has seen his defense allow six goals against Brighton and Brighton, putting them at the bottom of the table. Ten Hag is considering resting the 29-year-old for Monday’s match at Old Trafford against Liverpool, who are also winless after two games. It’s a concerning prospect for Maguire, who was given a vote of confidence by his manager’s decision to keep the armband in the summer. Erik ten Hag is considering benching Harry Maguire against Liverpool FC. Some fans have long called for the England international’s dismissal, citing his lack of leadership and underwhelming performances. Stam, on the other hand, claims that his recent performances have been hampered by two factors. He told that Maguire is still trying to adjust to Ten Hag’s new tactics. “Harry can do better for the club than what he’s been showing,” he said. “Because this manager is asking him questions that he isn’t always used to. It takes some time to gain the confidence to do so and the self-belief to perform better. United is now playing with one holder instead of two, which makes things more difficult and makes it easier for the opposition to press. These are the kinds of things that can help Maguire.” Stam also stated that the actions of his teammates, citing Diogo Dalot as an example, have not helped matters. “It’s important that the players alongside him, but also in front of him, the midfield players, help him out and give him the right options,” he added. On the right side, Dalot must assist Maguire by taking up the proper positions. That isn’t always beneficial to him.” “Defensively, sometimes he’s making decisions that aren’t the right ones,” he said of Maguire. But the same can be said for many of the players around him.” : Homepage for Manchester United news United is moving forward with a possible Casemiro transfer.
