OPINION: How Harry Maguire suffered relegation twice in one Season with two clubs


When Manchester United paid £80 million to Leicester City in 2019, Harry Maguire became the world's most expensive defender. Due to his high price tag, his performance has constantly been scrutinized since his arrival at Old Trafford, and the Englishman has done almost nothing to silence his critics.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointed the England international as the permanent Captain of the Red Devils inside the first six months of his arrival at the theatre of dreams.

Of course, the topic of whether Harry Maguire deserves to be United's captain has always been raised, given that he has never won a trophy in his career. Yes, you read that correctly: Harry Maguire has never won a trophy in his club career despite being the captain of the English Premier League's most powerful club.

Raphael Varane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edison Cavani, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Donny Van De Beek, and David De Gea, all of whom have won several Premier League titles, are all under Harry Maguire's management at Manchester United this season.

One of the most astounding aspects of his career was his ability to achieve renown in such a short amount of time. Harry Maguire had recently transferred to Hull City from Sheffield United about 7 years ago.

He signed Hull City for £2.5 million, according to reports. He wasn't even talented enough at the time, as he was unable to get into Hull City's starting lineup and was forced to be loaned away. That was the season in which Harry Maguire was relegated twice.

When you thought things couldn't get much worse, a player was relegated twice in the same season. Harry Maguire played for Hull City for the first part of the 2014/15 season. He joined the club in July 2014, but had to wait until December of that year, a full six months, to make his Premier League debut.

Harry Maguire was loaned to Championship club Wigan Athletics for a month during the January transfer window. The contract was later extended for the remainder of the season.

At the end of that season, Wigan Athletics, where Harry Maguire was on loan, was demoted from the Championship to League One, while Maguire's parent club Hull City was relegated from the English Premier League to the Championship. Harry Maguire was relegated twice in the 2014/15 season with two different clubs.
