Harry Maguire's mother opens up about the difficulties her son is facing
The mother of Manchester United's defender, Harry Maguire has joined her voice in the defence of her son who has been a victim of bullying on and off the pitch.
Maguire's mother, Zoe has opened up on what she went through as the mom of one of the most criticised players in world football. According to her Instagram post, she does not wish what her son is going through on anyone.
"As a mum, seeing the level of negative and abusive comments in which is receiving from some fans, pundits and the media is disgraceful and totally unacceptable to any walk of life never mind someone who works his socks off for club and country. I was there in the stands as usual, it’s not acceptable what’s been created over nothing. I understand that in world of football, there are ups and downs, positive and negatives but what Harry receives has gone far beyond football. For me seeing him go through what he’s going through is not ok. I’d hate to have to see other parents or players go through this in future, especially young boys and girls breaking through the ranks today. Harry has a massive heart and it’s a good job he’s mentally strong and can handle it as others may not be able too. I wish this sort of abuse on nobody”.
Recall that Harry Maguire has also spoken about the criticism that he has gotten from supporters of the Red Devils and the Three Lions.
He has not started any game in the opening four games of the season which was against Wolves, Tottenham, Nottingham Forest and Arsenal. It remains to be seen if the defender will be able to break into the first team.
