'We were naive at the end': Man Utd’s Maguire

Harry Maguire

Harry Maguire admitted “naive” Manchester United paid the price for being too attacking in the final minutes of their shock 1-2 defeat against Fulham on Saturday.  Erik ten Hag’s side suffered a major blow to their hopes of a top four finish in the Premier League as Alex Iwobi snatched Fulham’s winner seven minutes into stoppage-time. 


United defender Maguire looked to have rescued a point when his close-range finish in the 89th minute cancelled out Calvin Bassey’s 65th minute opener. But United were caught throwing players forward in search of all three points as Iwobi capped a counter-attack to seal Fulham’s first victory at Old Trafford since 2003.

“To be a goal behind, I thought our reaction was brilliant especially in the last 30 minutes and when we equalised probably only one team was going to win it. We were probably naive in the end by throwing too many bodies forward and getting done on the counter attack.”

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Sheffield United players Jack Robinson and Vinicius Souza were involved in an on-field clash following a dispute during the game against Wolves, which they won 1-0.
