Clip Shows Conversation Between Manchester United Players When Anthony Martial Was Sent Off

Clip Shows Conversation Between Manchester United Players When Anthony Martial Was Sent Off

Manchester United fans are unhappy with Harry Maguire's reaction to Anthony Martial's sending off against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, after a clip of the incident went viral.

By the end of their 6-1 hammering at the hands of Jose Mourinho's side on Sunday, the red card shown to Martial in the 28th minute couldn't be used as an excuse for anyone inside Old Trafford.

At the time of the incident, with Spurs leading just 2-1, it certainly seemed to have an effect on the game, with United heads unable to recover.

Most felt that Erik Lamela also should have seen red for flicking his elbow out at the French forward, which triggered him into retaliating.

That's clearly not how Maguire felt though, with a video capturing the captain's conversation with a clearly annoyed Marcus Rashford and the referee going viral.

Whilst some are suggesting that the England defender, who really sprung to prominence in the 2018 World Cup, is trying to stop his teammate from getting booked by the ref for complaining, most United fans aren't happy with the former Leicester City player's reaction.

One fan replied saying, "He should be stripped off the captaincy immediately but that won't happen unfortunately. The worst captain in the club's history!"

Another added, "That's a chat for the dressing room. On the pitch should be backing your players even if he 2 footed him. Can guarantee Vidic, Ferdinand etc never just went 'ok.'

A third had two suggestions for captain, adding, "I still say and would keep saying , he doesn't deserve to be the captain , Lacks leadership , Lacks experience , Of I have to choose , I would give Bruno or Mctominay."

And the general mood of the the thread was summed up best by one reply simply saying, "Strip him of the Captaincy now WTF."

Maguire joined United last summer for a world record fee for a defender of £80 million, an amount Paul Merson thought was ridiculous at the time, and was made club captain after Ashley Young left for Inter in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team did improve in defence last season, compared to the previous season, but the 27-year-old's form has not been good since football returned in June.

He was at fault for goals against Spurs and Bournemouth at the end of last season and the defence has been calamitous since this season started.

The former Sheffield United defender has also had to deal with the incident in Mykonos this summer, where he was arrested whilst on holiday.
