Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has replied those who believe there was a crisis at the club, after their loss to Tottenham.
The Red Devils bounced back from a 6-1 humiliation to José Mourinho’s side before the international break, as they put four past Newcastle United.
Harry Maguire was equally very influential to United’s victory, as he bagged one goal, and the 27 year old believes the win was important for the team’s confidence.
He told Sky Sports, “I wouldn’t say we have answered them [the critics]. It’s funny, three games into the season and it seems like a big crisis. Won two lost two. There is a long way to go, we have to improve.
“When you play for this club and get beat at home, we ask questions. We work hard in training, it is a great group and we knew we had to bounce back. I felt it would have been really harsh if we came away with just a point.
“A full deserved win. It was important. Every game in the Premier League we want to be on top. Some games we will not be at our best but we have to do the basics well and in the games we lost we didn’t do the basics well.
“We knew we needed to get three points and we managed to do so. We are still a young team but we won’t use that as an excuse. It was disappointing to start like we had but big performance tonight when we needed it.”
Maguire had been heavily criticised, following a string of poor performances for the Red Devils, but the captain would surely be happy tonight, having given the perfect response to the naysayers.
