Fans have taken to social media on Friday morning to share their thoughts on Harry Maguire.
Maguire returned to the starting line-up for the Red Devils on Friday when the Manchester outfit faced off with Australian side, Melbourne Victory.
United began their pre-season in style on Tuesday, putting four past bitter rivals Liverpool.
As a result, a similar outcome was expected on Friday vs Melbourne, even after Erik ten Hag was forced to drop David de Gea and Raphael Varane due to injury.

Harry Maguire was the man who replaced Varane in the eleven. And, unfortunately for Maguire, he has received a fair bit of stick for his role in the opening goal on Friday.
Melbourne tore through United’s weak press in a few passes, with the pace of Victor Lindelof and Maguire making it far too easy for Christopher Ikonomidis to find himself through on goal before slotting past Tom Heaton.
And whilst Lindelof did not cover himself in glory in the build-up to the goal, Maguire has received the brunt of the criticism, with just some of the reaction shown below:
This is why Maguire cannot play in a high line.

We can’t go into next season with Maguire. We just can’t. Don’t get me wrong, Lindelof should do better, but that’s just embarrassing awareness and pace. Massive mistake letting him keep the armband #mufc
