The response of Manchester United to the coronavirus has been exemplary, with individual players doing their bit as well as the collective 30% salary donation to the NHS.

Harry Maguire has become the latest player to do some work of his own up by setting up a scheme to help the elderly in Mosborough, the village outside of SHeffield where he grew up.

He has organised supplying a food package of everyday essentials for those aged 70 and over, or their carers.

Maguire has spoken about what has motivated him to start the new scheme.

I am very proud of my Mosborough roots – it’s where I grew up and where my family still live. I come back to visit everyone as much as I can.

There’s always been a real sense of community in the area which is more important than ever at the moment. In times like these you think a lot about your loved ones and those that are more elderly.

My family and I hope that this provides a small comfort to people who might be struggling.

Maguire is also involved in the #PlayersTogether initiative, which sees Premier League players join together to raise funds for NHS charities.

Maguire has also revealed what life has been like for him since the lockdown.

Like everyone, I’m keeping to the government advice and trying to make the best of the situation. My daughter is too young to understand what’s going on right now, but she’ll read about these times in the years to come.

I’m also keeping active and following the training programme that United have given me within the confines of my back garden! It’s not quite Old Trafford but I still take pride in keeping the grass in good nick. I also keep in touch with all my team-mates and have found that contact to be really important – as well as family of course.
