  • Harry Maguire received plaudits from Manchester United fans online for an odd reason
  • The United defender was brought on late on to see out the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United
  • Fans were adamant Maguire completely blanked the Glazers on his way to lifting the trophy

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire was hailed as a hero despite only playing for two minutes in the Carabao Cup final.

Maguire appeared to snub Avram Glazer, the co-chairman, who made a rare appearance to watch United play.

The last time Avram was present for a United game was all the way back in August 2022, when the Red Devils suffered a 2-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Goals from Casemiro and a deflected effort from Marcus Rashford which was helped in by from Sven Botman in the first half were enough to see off Eddie Howe’s side in the final at Wembley.

Maguire blanks Avram

As United players soaked up the moment amid celebrations, fans picked up on an interesting incident.

Maguire and company made their way to the balcony to pick up their winners’ medals, and the defender was among the first to gather for the trophy ceremony.

In full glare of cameras, Maguire acknowledged some United officials but completely ignored the Glazers, something which caught the eye of fans online.

“That’s the best thing Maguire has done as a Man United player,” One fan commented.
“Avram probably doesn’t even know Maguire is a United player,” another one joked.
“He probably has no idea who he is since they never come to games,” Said another.
“Used to be a maguire hater. No longer- My captain LOL,” another Twitter user added.

United fans aganst the Glazers

For the longest time, Manchester United fans have been against the way the club was being run by the Glazers.

Fans have constantly accused the American owners of failing to invest properly to further the club’s football, while Cristiano Ronaldo, in his explosive interview with Piers Morgan I November 2022, said “everything was the same” as when he left the club in 2009.

Sports Brief also reported on the hilarious dance Erik Ten Hag was spotted doing alongside Lisandro Martinez and Antony after the Carabao Cup triumph on Sunday.

The gaffer was spotted joining a dance with forward Antony and defender Lisandro Martinez. Both players were wrapped in the flags of their respective countries. He was then asked about the dance, and tactician quipped.

"We have our history together, the two, Licha and Antony, in Amsterdam we did some dancing. I hope we can do some more in the future. Therefore we have to invest, sacrifice, every day," He said.
