Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has endured a difficult season and continues to be criticised by fans and TV pundits.

Former United captain Roy Keane mocked Maguire’s post-match interview after the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool and also criticised his goal celebration against Albania.

After Keane’s criticism, former Tottenham and Real Madrid midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has now slammed the England international.Β 

“I talk about Harry Maguire so much, so I try to avoid him. But he is really s**t. I have said this so often,” Van der Vaart said on Dutch TV channel Ziggo Sport before United’s game against Villarreal.

“I can’t get away from the fact United have paid €90m for him. That’s how much he cost! Where did they look for him? You’ll find players like him at any amateur club in Holland.

“I think it is unbelievable. He is no top-class defender – and he demonstrates this every week. “If you go out and sign players like him, I can understand why you end up having financial problems.”
