David De Gea Was Absolutely Furious With Harry Maguire After Nervy Moment vs Atletico Madrid

David de Gea was visibly furious with Manchester United captain Harry Maguire after a very nervy moment against Atletico Madrid.

Maguire is becoming an easy target for supporters after a tough season on and off the pitch for United.

The England international looks short of confidence and one moment against Atletico even had de Gea worried.

Early in the second half, Maguire received the ball in his own box and looked for passing options.

Despite partner Raphael Varane telling Maguire to get it out wide, the 29-year-old decided to dribble in his own box.

Joao Felix put him under pressure and it saw Maguire give the ball back to de Gea, who booted the ball away first time.

It was a poor clearance and Rodrigo De Paul collected and decided to have a shot, which was saved.

De Gea immediately jumped to his feet and berated Maguire for a poor piece of play.

Maguire is still fancied by interim manager Ralf Rangnick and regularly starts next to Varane ahead of Victor Lindelof.

United were eliminated from the Champions League after a 1-0 defeat on Wednesday night and 2-1 loss on aggregate.

Renan Lodi's header in the first half separated the sides, meaning United haven't won a Champions League knockout game at home since 2014.

The home side insisted Anthony Elanga was fouled in the build-up to Lodi's goal and wanted it disallowed.

Rangnick was furious with referee Slavko Vincic's performance and explained: "That was a foul for sure on Anthony Elanga but the referee and the linesman didn't see it that way.

"For me that was the only real moment, and the offside goal, that they scored with. Apart from that, we defended well and we were compact in their transition moments. There is nothing I can blame the team for in the first half."

Atletico set up defensively after scoring and United failed to sustain their attacks.

Rangnick continued: "We know they are good at defending leads. We had one or two moments in the second half and there was a brilliant save from the goalkeeper. We were fully aware that against this team you need to score the first goal yourself."

United are currently fifth in the Premier League and one point behind Arsenal, but the Gunners have two games in hand.
