Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has criticized the Red Devils players following their Champions League 3-2 defeat against RB Leipzig on Tuesday night.

Maguire said Man United players weren’t ready and they started too slow against RB Leipzig in Germany.

RB Leipzig defeated the Premier League club, thanks to three goals from Angelino, Amadou Haidara and Justin Kluivert.

Speaking after the match, Maguire said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could not defend crosses against the Bundesliga side.

Man United’s defeat against RB Leipzig means the Old Trafford club will play in the Europa League round of 32.

“We started the game too slow. It wasn’t good enough,” Maguire told BT Sport.

“The first 20 minutes we weren’t at it. They put two balls in the box, and we failed to deal with them.

“We have to look at ourselves, we gave ourselves too much to do. You have seen how close we came at the end, but we started too slow, and we can’t keep falling behind.

“We said on Saturday at half-time, 2-0 down, the next goal is crucial, and we said it again tonight. They made it 3-0 and the task becomes even bigger. The third goal proved to be the crucial one, but even three down, we came close at the end.

“I don’t want to look at excuses. We have to go out and be aggressive, win balls. That’s the basics. If you can’t defend crosses, you are going to lose games. I don’t want to look at shape – it’s not an excuse.”

Maguire added, “It’s a tough group, but we felt we should get through. That’s the standards of this club. I’m gutted for everyone. We worked so hard to reach this competition. No matter what group we got, it would be tough. We have to do more.”
