Maguire and Shaw

Harry Maguire is facing the prospect of a retrospective ban for an alleged foul on teammate Luke Shaw during UTD’s defeat to Spurs on Sunday. Maguire appeared to haul Shaw down as he attempted to clear the ball.

Foul

Solskjaer presser“A ban would be harsh,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Soccer on Sunday. “Harry’s put his hands on Shawsy, who’s gone down a little easy. Is it a dive? Nobody likes accusing someone, especially when it’s your own team. But I think Shawsy’s been clever there. He knows Harry’s in trouble if he goes down.”

“Harry will learn from this,” said the Norwegian. “The word is out that he’s shit at football, so he’s a target now. Opposition players, teammates — everybody is going to look to exploit that side of his game.”

“The shit side,” added Solskjaer.
