Harsh words from the former Spurs hero.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has claimed that Harry Maguire is ‘sh*t’, and is amazed at the price United paid for him.

Maguire, and United have endured a torrid season so far, leading to the untimely sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning.

And speaking on Dutch TV, van der Vaart took aim at Maguire, claiming that United made a grave error signing him for the fee they did.

“I talk about Harry Maguire so much, so I try to avoid him,” van der Vaart said on Dutch TV station Ziggo Sport. “But he is really s**t. I have said this so often.

“I can’t get away from the fact United have paid €90m for him. That’s how much he cost!

“Where did they look for him? You’ll find players like him at any amateur club in Holland.

“I think it is unbelievable. He is no top-class defender – and he demonstrates this every week.

“If you go out and sign players like him, I can understand why you end up having financial problems.”

Earlier this week, Maguire took to Twitter to praise Solskjaer – the manager who brought him to Old Trafford, and also made him captain.

He wrote: “You signed me for the best club in the world and gave me the biggest honour in football.

“Huge respect and forever grateful. Thank you for everything boss. Legend.”
