‘Useless’ Harry Maguire slated for turning Joao Felix into ‘prime Andy Carroll’

Harry Maguire has been ripped to shreds by Manchester United fans for his 'useless' display in Atletico Madrid's opening goal.

The England international, 28, has been on the receiving end of heavy criticism from the Old Trafford faithful for his error-prone performances in recent weeks.

Maguire has also been involved in a behind-the-scenes captaincy battle with Cristiano Ronaldo with reports of a split dressing room at the Theatre of Dreams.

And now the United centre-back was once again the instigator of a social media meltdown after failing to clear the danger as Atletico Madrid took the lead in their Champions League round of 16 match.

"Harry Maguire, Manchester United captain, 6'4, head the size of a microwave, can't stop 5'9 Felix scoring a header. 80 million pounds," griped one fan.

"Only Harry Maguire could make Joao Felix look like prime Andy Carroll in the air," quipped another.

"Fair play to Harry Maguire, he put himself in a great position to get a good view of that Felix header," joked a third.

"Harry Maguire is useless," commented a fourth.

Despite failing to deal with the initial cross, there was nothing Maguire could do once the ball met the head of Joao Felix.

The Portuguese striker provide a sumptuous finish as the ball cannoned off the post and into the back of the net, leaving David de Gea stranded in the middle of the goal.

Meeting the whipped delivery from Renan Lodi, Felix rose highest to power his header past the ex-Atletico 'keeper, who was powerless to prevent his former side taking the lead.
