Harry Maguire has thanked David Beckham after the former Manchester United star contacted the troubled England defender to offer support when he was booed by Scotland fans earlier this season. 


The 30-year-old was mercilessly goaded at Hampden Park after scoring an own goal in England’s 3-1 win. 


Maguire laughed it off as a “little bit of banter” immediately after the match but his mother publicly came to his defence after growing tired of the relentless abuse of her son. Former England captain Beckham also offered support to Maguire as he personally reached out to the former Leicester star. “I actually spoke with David about three weeks ago, after the Scotland game,” Maguire said on Monday.

“He got in touch with me, so it was really nice of him and I really appreciated that. It meant everything. “I’ve spoken throughout my career about David Beckham being someone I looked up to and watched when I was a young boy,” Maguire added.
