Harry Maguire admits he was struggling with injury before Coventry City game

Harry Maguire has admitted he barely trained in the week leading up to the FA Cup semi-final vs Coventry.

Manchester United made it through to the FA Cup semi-final by the skin of their teeth. Erik ten Hag is no doubt fearing for his job after what was a brutal performance by the Red Devils – particularly in that second half.

Injuries continue to be the story of the season. The likes of Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat and Willy Kambwala were added to the list of casualties before this game against Coventry City.

However, another man played through an injury vs Coventry as he stated he always puts the ‘club first’. That man? Harry Maguire. During his post-match presser, the United star admitted he barely trained last week, but dragged himself out on the field.

Check out what Harry Maguire had to say here:

“I always put the club first. I haven’t really trained this week”. Maguire said live on ITV, per Fabrizio Romano.

Before Ten Hag took charge, I’d given up on Maguire. I am happy to admit I was wrong. At that time, he was just struggling for confidence. Now, we’re starting to see his qualities again.

Maguire is one of very few fighters within that dressing room. He’ll always put in the required effort and put his body on the line for the cause.

Not only was he very important defensively when Coventry were piling on the pressure, but he scored a brilliant header to help set United on their way in the first half.

No doubt Maguire is feeling the pain this morning, but with United’s back line looking as thin as ever, the Englishman will be doing everything he can to get himself fit for a game against his former side, Sheffield Wednesday, in midweek.

Well played, Harry.
