Lots of Manchester United fans have gushed over Harry Maguire’s training skills after the club’s official Twitter account shared a clip of the club captain drilling his shooting in his back garden.
As a result of these troubling times, players and staff alike have been told to stay away from Carrington training ground, and the 27-year-old has been practising at home to keep his sharpness levels up. Maguire uploaded a video on Instagram of himself taking potshots at a target practice set up next to his garage.
United published the footage on social media and captioned the tweet “the skipper has no problem finding the top bin.”

The England international is affectionately known as ‘Slabhead’ by many fans across the country, a nickname coined by his former teammate Jamie Vardy (BBC).
After arriving at Old Trafford from Leicester City for £78.3m last summer, Maguire has impressed with a series of defensive shifts, making 4.5 clearances and completing 1.9 interceptions on average per game in the Premier League (via WhoScored).
Unsurprisingly, lots of Red Devils raved over the club’s post on social media, with several dubbing the defender the “best in the world.” Another pleaded with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to “get him on pens.”
