De Gea is hot-blooded, shouting straight in Maguire’s face

The Manchester United captain continued to show an unconvincing performance in the last encounter.

Although he saved many times for Man Utd in the last encounter, he even tried to make a difference in the final minutes of the match. But the effort from David de Gea was still not enough to help the home team win a ticket to play in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
De Gea has reason to be disappointed in the outcome of the recent clash. While the opponent plays a tight game, he has to face a series of dangerous situations created by his teammates.
Typically, the situation took place in the 52nd minute, Harry Maguire had a rather cumbersome ball in the penalty area.
Faced with Joao Felix’s intense closeness, the Man Utd captain decided to pass and push De Gea into a difficult position when there were 2 blue shirt balls besieging the goal.
De Gea immediately “fired” the situation by kicking the ball far away from the goal, but the ball found the foot of Rodrigo De Paul – a long-range specialist. In the first half, he also threatened the Red Devils goal with a classy long-range cannon and it was only a brilliant save from De Gea that kept the Man Utd net from shaking.
Fortunately for the Red Devils, this time the Argentine star’s shot found the right position of De Gea.
However, the star born in 1990 could not hide his inhibitions with his teammates, he expressed his anger and shouted at Maguire.
Although this is not the first time De Gea has been pushed into a difficult position by the Man Utd captain, in important matches like this, it is clear that his subjectivity has reached the limit of endurance from the 31-year-old goalkeeper.
Despite moving to Man Utd for a fee of up to £ 80 million, Maguire is considered the biggest weakness in the Red Devils defense.
Perhaps the former Leicester player should consider ceding the captain’s armband to a more suitable name.
