Harry Maguire was substituted on in the second half in our 3-0 win over Sheriff Tiraspol, having missed the previous month with injury.

Speaking to the club’s official site, Maguire

It’s great to be back. Being injured is always a tough part of being a footballer, but I’ve been kicking every ball on the sidelines, cheering every goal that’s gone in and supporting the lads. We’ve picked up some good results and we’re pushing [to] where we want to be in the Premier League as well. We’ve got important games coming up and that’s what it’s all about.

I support the lads whether I’m playing, whether I’m watching at home or whether I’m in the stands. I kick every ball and I cheer every goal. As a footballer you want to play games and you want to be available to help the team, so it’s nice to be back on the training pitch, it’s nice to get some minutes tonight and that’s what it’s all about. It’s about helping the team move forward.

There was a mixed reaction to Maguire’s return, although he was largely received well. He has thanked the fans who supported him.

Playing at Old Trafford is a dream come true, so every time you step on that pitch [it’s amazing], especially the reception. So I thank the fans for the amazing reception, and I’m looking forward to playing now and hopefully staying injury free.
