Man Utd captain Maguire breaks silence on bomb threat


Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has spoken of the bomb threat at his family home last season.

Cheshire Police opened an investigation into the incident in April.

Speaking for the first time about it, Manchester United skipper Maguire said: "Obviously I'm in a position where I'm going to be criticised.

"United paid a large sum of money for me and I totally accept criticism when we concede goals or make mistakes.

"But there is a line where we are human beings. I do have a family. People ask if it affects me. My mentality is that it doesn't affect me too much but when it comes to bomb threats, it is more about family.

"My wife Fern, I'm just happy my kids are at an age where they don't read things and see things on the news. If my kids were older, they could see things and go to school and people are speaking about it. That is when it affects you a little bit more.

"United are one of the most loved clubs in the world and also one of the most hated in the world. We're under the most scrutiny."
