Manchester United defender Brandon Williams has slammed Harry Maguire’s social media trolls as ‘little idiots on Twitter’.
Maguire finds himself under the spotlight yet again, having been displaced by Erik ten Hag’s new preferred defensive duo Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. The England international has not started a Premier League match since United’s horrific 4-0 away defeat to Brentford in August.
Gareth Southgate’s decision to remain loyal and call up the former Leicester City defender has only added to the fire of criticism currently engulfing Maguire. However, Williams launched a passionate defence of Maguire, stating the England defender, and the rest of the United team, do not give the social media abusers any credence.

"People don’t listen to the outside world," Williams said to The Sportsman. "Harry [Maguire] will go into training a hundred per cent every day. Harry will give, whether he’s starting the game, whether he’s not starting the game, one hundred per cent.
"We don't care about the outside world because like I said, the only thing that matters is the opinions on the inside. The opinions on the inside mean the most important.
"If you’re doing well in training, who’s some little idiot sat on Twitter that’s going to tell you that you shouldn’t be starting a game? Who is he? I don't get it. I genuinely don’t get it. Harry is a top fella, top captain, top player."

Unfortunately for Maguire, he is currently cursed with an unfortunate record of losing every match he has started for the Red Devils this season. Nevertheless, Williams believes Maguire will bounce back and rediscover his best form.
"He'll have a great career, he’s already had a great career. He’s on stepping stones and he’ll get to the top where he wants to be.
"He’s already at the top. He’s captain of Man United. I dream to be that one day and he’s already done it."
