HARRY MAGUIRE has to shut up the booboys with his acting on the pitch.
This is a message from Manchester United’s new manager, Eric Ten Haag.
He showed his faith in Maguire by keeping him as captain.
However, that didn’t stop Melbourne’s Manchester United fans booing him in the first half against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
The following season he was booed by some English fans and also began to obsess over Old Trafford.
Ten Hag said: “We hear it, but doing it slows it down. Harry and Tim paused after being impressed with the way they played.
“It’s about how we can change that and how the team and Harry himself can change that through performances.
“That’s what we’re doing. That is the only focus.”
Maguire will lead the team back tonight in Game 4 of their pre-season tour of Australia against Bangkok tonight.
They face Aston Villa here at the sold-out Optus Stadium in Perth.

The team will return to England right away after a long and tiring trip to the other side of the globe.
But Ten Hag accepts that this is part and parcel of being the best club in the Premier League.
“It’s part of football these days, so you have to accept it as a manager,” he said.
“As a team, you have to do your best and that’s what we did.
“I think the team spirit that has been with us for a long time is great. You can really improve and develop. We have a lot of time to work in a team because we are so close together. That’s great.
“It’s wonderful to be in a big city like Bangkok, Melbourne and Perth.
“It’s clear that there are downsides, but something decided has to deal with things that don’t affect them.”
