Harry Maguire Blames Rival Managers For Lack Of Penalties

Harry Maguire Blames Rival Managers For Lack Of Penalties

Harry Maguire has blamed rival managers such as Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho for Manchester United's lack of a penalty against West Brom on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation strugglers West Brom, all but ending any lingering hopes they had of really challenging Manchester City for the title.

The hosts took a surprise lead early in the game, when Mbaye Diagne out muscled Victor Lindelof to head home after just two minutes. Bruno Fernandes scored a wonder goal just before half-time but United struggled to break down Sam Allardyce's side from there.

United were awarded a penalty around the hour mark, when Semi Ajayi was adjudged to have brought down Maguire at a free kick, but the decision was overturned by VAR.

Speaking after the game the United captain pointed the finger at other managers for the reason his side didn't win the spot kick. "Ever since other people from other teams spoke about us we've had absolutely nothing from the referee or VAR," he told MUTV.

"At the moment we're playing without them so we've got to make sure we're not leaving the game in the hands of the referee or the VAR."

Speaking to Sky Sports he added, "I was so confident that it was going to be given as a penalty but it seems like the decisions at the moment are going against us.

"But we've got to be doing more to win the game. We can't be relying on VAR decisions, we've got to do more to win the game."

Back in January, after losing to Southampton, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp felt that his team should have been awarded two penalties.

He took a dig at United's penalty record, compared to his own side's, saying, "I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five-and-a-half years. I've no idea if that's my fault, or how that can happen."

Jose Mourinho also took a aim at Fernandes last month about the number of penalties he scores. Speaking about his own player Son Heung-min bringing up his 100th goal for Spurs, the former United manager said, "To get the Puskas award, to be scoring 100 goals for Tottenham and to be maybe in the top three Premier League scorers without penalties.

"Some players score 10 goals a season on penalties and I'm not speaking about Harry Kane, by the way."

United have felt aggrieved at some recent decisions going against them. Some felt Victor Lindelof was fouled in the lead up to West Brom's goal on Sunday whilst the loss to Sheffield United recently saw two fouls on goalkeepers go against them.
