A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent segment on Manchester United’s official Youtube channel, England international Harry Maguire revealed the one thing nobody knows about him. When quizzed about it, Maguire said,

‘I eat Lasagna the day before every game.’

Maguire has served as a useful member of Man United head coach Erik ten Hag’s match-day squad this season. As of 23 March 2023, the English sensation has participated in 24 matches for the Red Devils but is still waiting to score or assist a goal during this campaign across all fronts.

The former Leicester City player has done well to get some confidence back in his game this year. Maguire has been a solid presence at the heart of Ten Hag’s defence based on his average of 0.5 tackles, 0.6 interceptions and 2.3 clearances per 90 minutes in Premier League football. He has even been careful when interchanging possession with his teammates after completing 86.9% of his attempted passes in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Harry Maguire: Player Profile

Maguire was born in Sheffield, England and joined Barnsley’s youth set-up at a very tender age before going on to join his local club, Sheffield United back in 2009. The English defensive ace came through their youth ranks before sealing a permanent move to Hull City in 2014.

After initially struggling to perform at a high level for Hull, he was sent out on loan to Wigan Athletic. That loan move gave him the confidence to come back and make a significant impact for Hull in the following year.

In the summer of 2017, Leicester City decided to sign him. Maguire took the chance well and established himself as a reliable defender for them in top-flight football.

Man United opted to bring him to Old Trafford in 2019. At the time of writing, Maguire has made a total of 168 matches for the Red Devils so far and has got seven goals and five assists to his name across all fronts.

The England international endured a difficult spell at the Theatre of Dreams last season. However, he has come back strong and has helped ten Hag’s Man United to win the Carabao Cup recently which remains the highest point of his playing career at Old Trafford.

The way Maguire has been playing of late, Man United fans will hope that he gets all the lasagna he needs on the day prior to his games after this international break as the club would need to rely on him as they try to compete across three different competitions in the final stretch of this campaign.
