Manchester United fans are loving a clip of Harry Maguire berating Luke Shaw during the club’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United on Wednesday.
With no fans in attendance at Old Trafford, mics picked up the Man United skipper screaming at the left-back to “f***ing switch on” after Shaw’s lapse in concentration nearly resulted in United losing possession.
The clip is doing the rounds on social media and it’s left United supporters pleased to hear a vocal leader in the squad.
Standards have been allowed to slip since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013 but it’s going to take people like Maguire holding his teammates accountable to bring them back to the top.
And if they can continue to get impressive performances out of the likes of Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, perhaps this is the start of United‘s resurgence.

Maguire is no Roy Keane but Man United fans are still happy to see evidence of leadership among the group.
Maguire helped Man United keep a clean sheet as they made it 13 games unbeaten with a 3-0 win over Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United.
Anthony Martial scored a superb hat-trick – Man United’s first in the Premier League in more than seven years – as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men boosted their hopes of a top four finish.
With the attack firing on all cylinders and the defence recording a shutout, it was a pleasant evening for the Norwegian and his side.
