Harry Maguire has suffered the latest indignity to his season, after Norwich City's social media post comparing the Manchester United defender to one of their own.
It's not been a particularly good campaign for anyone at Old Trafford, as the team glide aimlessly towards the conclusion of the Premier League with their chances of finishing in the top four diminishing.
Maguire has been on the end of lots of criticism personally, for his form as an £80 million centre back and for his captaincy of the team.
The latest ignominy for the centre back saw predecessor Nemanja Vidic claim the England international should only play against the 'easier opponents,' coming after a loss against a team fourth bottom in the league.
Now the 29-year-old has been dealt another blow, as Norwich City's social media compared Maguire with Grant Hanley, and the pair's matching stats this season.
Fans were obviously quick to jump on the tweet, with some very much enjoying it and others getting annoyed at the comparison, obviously depending who they supported.

If you want to lads, you can compare their stats next season when you’re in the Championship.— Nathan (@Burton_MUFC) April 14, 2022
Maguire will have a very early chance to get one over on Dean Smith's team, when United host the relegation threatened side on Saturday afternoon.
Ralf Rangnick's team have only won one of the past seven games in all competitions and those results have seen them knocked out of the Champions League and lose pace with the battle for the top four.
United are currently six points off the final spot for the Champions League next season, with just seven games of their league campaign to go.
