Neville, who weighs in on England’s celebration, claims that Harry Maguire is not yet Manchester United’s leader and is BURNT OUT with Luke Shaw.

Harry Maguire is ‘not there yet’ as a Manchester United leader, according to Gary Neville.

The 46-year-old pundit also believes that the defender, like teammate Luke Shaw, is suffering from ‘burnout.’

Maguire’s United form has dipped in recent weeks, with losses to Leicester, Manchester City, and Liverpool not shining brightly.

However, when he let off steam with a pointed goal celebration against Albania, Roy Keane called him “embarrassing” and “a disgrace.”

Neville, on the other hand, is more sympathetic to Maguire’s situation.

“When I saw him do that, I thought he’d get some flak,” he told the Mail.

“But, Harry, whatever it takes to be yourself again and reclaim your confidence and authority, you do it.”

It’s all part of his education.

“Harry Maguire is on his way to becoming a leader, but he isn’t quite there yet.”

At the end of last season, I thought he had the United dressing room in the palm of his hand.


“After that, he was injured and went to the European Championships, where he had the most incredible experience.”

“Right now, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are suffering from post-Euros burnout.”

“I know because I’ve experienced it.

I was playing for West Ham at the start of the 1998-1999 season and Kiddo [Brian Kidd] came over to me and said, ‘You are f****d aren’t you?’

“I said, ‘Kiddo, I’m done.’

They substituted me and gave me two weeks off after that.

“I had played in the Umbro Cup in 1995, Euro in 1996, Le Tournoi in 1997, and then the World Cup in 1998, and then I blew up at the start of the following season.”

“Harry Maguire, along with a few others, is the club’s future, so I have no doubts about him.”

“Like me, he’s going through a two- or three-year period of craziness.”

It takes a toll on your emotional well-being.

Every summer, there are only three weeks off.

“I get it when he covers his ears with his hands.”

I once went over to Liverpool supporters and gave them a lot of money.

If he’s okay with it, I’m okay with it as well.

“I once played Vasco da Gama and gave up two pass backs in three minutes, brought Edmundo and Romario in, and we lost the World Club Championship. I lost my confidence for six months and had to see a psychologist.”

“So I’ve been in Harry Maguire’s shoes.”

“So when he puts his hands over his ears, all I want to know is whether he regrets it after the game or if he’s fine with it.”

“And if he’s a good guy…
