Europa League Real reason I played Maguire as a striker against Sociedad – Ten Hag. Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has justified his selection of Harry Maguire as captain for the Europa League match against Real Sociedad.
In the first half, United took the lead thanks to Alejandro Garnacho.
However, Ten Hag’s team needed to defeat the LaLiga team by a score of two goals or more to win Group E.
For a significant portion of the second half, United were disjointed, and late on, Ten Hag decided to bring Harry Maguire as a replacement striker.
However, United was unable to get that vital second goal, therefore the adjustment was ineffective.
It is obvious that we needed the goal, so we made a more strategic move.
We attempted to move more directly into the box and I believe we did so multiple times, quicker to get into the box for the opponent, according to Ten Hag, who spoke to BT Sport. “With Cristiano and Harry Maguire, you have two strong headers,” Ten Hag said.
