Harry Maguire tweeted a message of defiance after Man United‘s drab goalless draw at AZ Alkmaar, but he deleted it after receiving a backlash from angry fans.
The world’s most expensive defender didn’t feature in United’s dour performance in Netherlands as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went with a center-back pairing of Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo.
That pair, as well as goalkeeper David de Gea, all did their jobs to perfection as AZ Alkmaar weren’t able to break the deadlock despite having four shots on target.
The Red devils, by contrast, were poor in an already average game at the AFAS Stadion as they failed to manage a single shot on target throughout the 90-minutes on Thursday.
United fans didn’t respond kindly to their team’s performance as Man United became only the 3rd team in the Europa League this season who have come out of a game without having a single shot on target.
