What has Maguire said about his displays in 2021-22?
“Last year was certainly a setback for me on my career path but it’s behind us now,” the England international told reporters on the club’s pre-season tour.
“We look forward to the future and getting this club back to winning trophies, which is what it’s all about.
“Last year was disappointing, as an individual, I didn’t play well and as a team, we certainly didn’t play well, but a good career can last 10 to 15 years and you’re never going to have every year where it’s plain sailing and you don’t have any difficulties. You’re going to have to fight, you’re going to have setbacks.”
“It’s been tough. The running has been hard but we’re really looking forward to the season,” the 29-year-old added.
“Everyone – the players, the club – know last year was nowhere near good enough but it’s a fresh start and we’ve got a big season ahead.
“Erik and his coaching staff are bringing their ideas and the first two games you’ve seen little glimpses of the principles. We’re working towards being ready for that first Premier League game, that’s what matters. Everything we’re doing now is building for that first game.”
