In recent years, David de Gea has frequently taken the brunt of the criticism.
On Sunday afternoon, De Gea celebrated his 400th Premier League game for United by keeping a clean sheet in their 2-0 victory over Leeds.
After the game, Maguire reiterated to Sky Sports that De Gea bears extra pressure due of his position in such a large club, but has frequently handled it well.
“It’s a pleasure to play in front of him,” Maguire said.
“To play 400 games for this club in the most scrutinised position in world football, that just shows how good he’s been over the years for club. He’s a legend and is performing at the highest level this season and he’ll keep doing that.”
In Sunday’s triumph, Maguire earned a rare start for United, and when asked if he hoped to play a bigger role in Ten Hag’s lineup, he responded:
“Winning is the most important thing. I put the team miles before myself. It’s a good one for the fans.
“It’s not about me, it’s about the team and about the club being successful. Obviously I want to be a big part of it. The only thing you can do is train well and make sure you’re ready when the chance comes.”
