Former Manchester United defender, Paul Parker has slammed Harry Maguire for being a selfish player.

Parker’s criticism comes after United’s latest game in the Premier League, which ended in a 1-1 draw against West Brom.

Following the game, some pundits blamed Victor Lindelof, and have called for him to be replaced, but Parker believes our captain isn’t any good either because he’s not a leader.

Speaking to The Sun, he said, “Despite the position that United find themselves in the Premier League, they still need to strengthen in the transfer market this summer.

“Regarding the centre-backs, people talk about bringing in a new partner for Harry Maguire, but I would look at bringing in two centre-backs, why can’t it be a player who comes in and plays alongside Victor Lindelof?

“Harry Maguire is not a leader, he plays the game for himself, he sits way too deep, he dribbles for the sake of dribbling and runs himself into cul-de-sacs. I have always been unsure about Maguire.

“When United paid £80 million, the club didn’t buy an £80 million centre=back, it was great business by Leicester City. Bringing in competition for places always helps players to improve their game.”
