Eks bek Liverpool, Jamie Carragher mengkritik bek Manchester United, Harry Maguire. Carragher bilang, jadi bek yang berani dong!

Terbaru, Harry Maguire gagal membendung perlawanan Everton dalam lanjutan Liga Inggris pada Minggu (7/2/2021) dini hari WIB dengan skor akhir 3-3. Khususnya soal gol penyeimbang yang dicetak Dominic Calvert-Lewin di injury time, Maguire terlihat lepas penjagaan dari striker tersebut.

Pundit sepakbola sekaligus eks beknya Liverpool, Jamie Carragher mengkritik Harry Maguire. Katanya, Maguire kurang berani.

"Dia harus lebih berani dalam situasi bola mati. Dia harus berani berduel dan mempertahankan garis pertahanannya," ujar Carragher kepada Sky Sports.

"Dalam situasi bola mati, bek tengah akan berdesakan dan mungkin tak bisa melihat arah bola. Namun bek tengah harus berani mengambil keputusan," lanjutnya.

Bola mati memang masih jadi masalah besar Manchester United. Beberapa kali hal itu membuat gawang David De Gea kebobolan, MU akhirnya jadi kehilangan tiga poin.

"Harry Maguire sejauh ini belum terlihat berani untuk menyapu bola-bola dari tendangan bebas lawan," terang Carragher.

Manchester United pun kini menjauh dari Manchester City di Klasemen Liga Inggris. Setan Merah sementara mengumpulkan 45 poin dari 23 laga. Minus lima poin dari Manchester City di peringkat pertama, yang mana The Citizens punya satu laga belum dimainkan.

"Manchester United harus membenahi pertahanan mereka dalam menghadapi bola mati," tutup Jamie Carragher.
