EPL: It won’t continue forever – England boss, Southgate warns Man United star
England manager, Gareth Southgate has told Harry Maguire to consider leaving Manchester United in order to keep his place in the national team starting XI.
Maguire never misses Southgate’s call up whether he sits on Man United’s bench for the whole season or not. He has been one of the ever present players in the Three Lions’ squad.
But the 30-year-old former Leicester City star has lost his place in Manchester United’s XI this season with Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez now Erik ten Hag’s preferred pairing at the back.
Maguire has only been able to start just seven league games this season but has kept his place in the England XI.
He has been named in Southgate’s squad for upcoming Euro qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.
“Inevitably it’s not a situation that can continue forever,” Gareth Southgate said of Maguire.
Southgate has also suggested his regular no1, Jordan Pickford could also find himself in a difficult situation should he be relegated to the Championship with Everton.
“That would depend on how well he was playing,” Southgate said.
