'I wish this sort of abuse on nobody': Harry Maguire's mother defends him in passionate statement

Harry Maguire's mother wrote on Instagram on Thursday: "As a mum seeing the level of negative and abusive comments in which my son is receiving from some fans, pundits and the media is disgraceful and totally unacceptable to any walk of life never mind someone who works his socks off for club and country. 

'I was there in the stand as usual, it's not acceptable what's been created, over nothing. I understand that in the football world there are ups and downs, positives and negatives but what Harry receives has gone far beyond 'football'. For me seeing him go through what he's going through is not okay.

"I would hate to have to see any other parents or players go through this in the future, especially the young boys and girls breaking through the ranks today. Harry has a massive heart and it's a good job he's mentally strong and can handle it as others may not be able too. I wish this sort of abuse on nobody!"

Maguire was jeered by both sets of fans after scoring an own goal in England's 3–1 win away at Scotland earlier this week in an international friendly.

The centre-back, who has stripped of the captain's armband by Erik ten Hag, refused to leave Manchester United this summer in order to fight for his place.
