Harry Maguire causes uproar with his social media ‘mistake’ about an upset Cristiano Ronaldo

Harry Maguire causes uproar with his social media ‘mistake’ over reports of an upset Cristiano Ronaldo who allegedly asks to leave Man Utd.

Social media followers of the Red Devils defender spotted that he ‘liked’ a post by SPORTbible on Instagram which reposted a a newspaper story that one of the reasons CR7 was unhappy at Old Trafford was because he is having to take a 25% pay cut due to the Premier League club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Underneath the post, it has been liked by Maguire’s official account, leading to much anger from Man Utd fans at his decision to publicly react to a behind-the-scenes issue.

This incident is just the latest for new boss Erik ten Hag to deal with after United’s return to pre-season training, something which has been dominated by the absence of Ronaldo, who has refused to return to Carrington as he bids to engineer a summer move away.



Citing ‘family reasons’, the Portugal international has not joined back up with his team-mates after the summer break, leaving the likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Napoli on red alert.

It was not entirely clear whether Maguire was just as unhappy or having some fun at his teammate’s expense because the remaining 75% means Ronaldo is ‘only’ getting around £360,000-a-week.

However, BBC Sport has been told Maguire liked the story in error and it has now been removed and he is due at Old Trafford tonight to watch England open their Euro 2022 campaign against Austria.

Maguire has returned to training but he may now also face the wrath of Ten Hag if the manager doesn’t take kindly to his social media activity, whether the like was intended or not.

At the end of the week, his side will fly to Bangkok to face Liverpool in their opening match of pre-season, before heading Down Under for games against Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

They then head out to Europe for a showdown with Atletico Madrid in Oslo, although it’s yet to be seen whether Ronaldo would be present for any of the five matches this summer.

Harry Maguire causes a huge uproar with his social media ‘mistake’ over an upset Cristiano Ronaldo, see what everyone is saying below…

@Abdurrahmerhn: Mistake???

@SteaZyUTD; Harry Maguire shouldn’t play one more game for Manchester United.

@MikeLUHG2: Speak up fella @HarryMaguire93. No need for the subliminal bullshit, if you have some sort of problem with a player infinitely better than you could ever dream of being, let’s hear it, sure you can arrange another BBC interview? Hope this helps

@MikeLUHG2: Hi pal @HarryMaguire93. For future reference, Cristiano Ronaldo won this club 3 PLs, a CL, and 3 other cups. You have broke 40+ negative records and have the club on its longest run without a trophy in half a century. Know your fucking place. Hope this helps

@UTDTrey: This Harry Maguire cost us £80m and he has only brought pain and disappointment. He needs to f*ck out of my Club

@TGmanik18: Never a mistake that don’t cover it up what’s done is done Should be stripped of the captaincy and does not deserve it there’s players club that reserve a.k.a. De gea or Ronaldo but that situation that’s going on with Ronaldo unfortunately #GlazersOut

@slimBen23330931: Manchester United made a mistake by signing maguire @HarryMaguire93

@Caleb_Mufc: It is essential that Harry Maguire gets stripped of the captaincy going into the new season…

@realsavanti: As long as @HarryMaguire93, who has been known to leak intimate details from within the dressing room for his own advantages to the press for months, is captain of @ManUtd, the team will not be challenging for a title.

@SixteenKeane; Maguire is so desperate to shift blame on to others. I think he feels he’s been made a scapegoat for a terrible season when the truth is he was awful. There are literally compilation videos of his errors last season that last 4 or 5 minutes long #MaguireOut #MUFC

@Ben__UTD: The #MaguireOut is trending and rightly so. Keep it that way.

@sagheerosman: Harry maguire liking a post that says Ronaldo wants to leave due to a drop in wages, the guy has zero shame, absolutely classless and the worst 80mil we’ve ever spent, there’s people who want him to be our captain

@Jed_UTD: Harry Maguire is the most hated footballer of all time I have never seen anything like it the witch hunt he faces constantly day in day out is pathetic and ridiculous

@Utd__Agenda: Sick of @HarryMaguire93 at this point. Nowhere near a representation of anything to do with @ManUtd

@the_luhg: Harry Maguire continues to show us how much of an absolute Bellend he is. The guys got 2 left feet and has the coordination of a sloth 😂 @ManUtd please sell this prick, he doesn’t belong at the club!! #Mufc #GlazersSellManUtd #GlazersOut
