On the other hand, Maguirre would have the support of the English players and the coaching staff. Something that was reflected in the field. That’s because Manchester United finished the Premier League in sixth position, without qualifying for the Champions League and with their lowest score in the tournament’s history. In addition, he fell in the round of 16 of the Champions League.
