Newcastle vs Man Utd: Solskjaer told to drop Maguire for EPL clash

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has advised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Harry Maguire for this weekend’s trip to Newcastle.

The 27-year-old has endured a miserable start to the campaign and was sent off on England duty in midweek, as the Three Lions lost 1-0 to Denmark in the UEFA Nations League.

With Solskjaer himself under pressure and needing a result at St James’ Park, Ferdinand has suggested it would be better if Maguire is taken out of the heat.

“Ole has a big job on his hands and I think quite an important role to play in this.

“I got brought off in one game, I think it was Middlesbrough away, the manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] spoke to me and said “get yourself back to basics, train well and you’ll come back in”.

“That’s what happened and I was fine. It’s just sometimes that bit of pressure being taken out that can actually help you,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
