Euro 2024: Paul Parker slams Southgate for disrespecting Erik ten Hag

Former Manchester United man Paul Parker has slammed England boss Gareth Southgate for disrespecting Erik Ten Hag for always calling up Harry Maguire.

Maguire has not been a regular under Erik ten Hag at Manchester United this season with the Dutchman preferring the partnership of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez at his centre-back.

However, Maguire has managed to get a call-up to the national team consistently under Southgate.

Speaking to BonusCodeBets, Parker claimed that the England coach’s actions were disrespectful to Ten Hag and believed the Englishman was not doing the Manchester United’s captain any good.

He said: “I think that Gareth Southgate has disrespected Erik ten Hag by picking Harry Maguire to the national team. It is very disrespectful and a completely wrong decision.

“Erik ten Hag has made it clear that he is not good enough for Man United, so how can he be good enough to play for the national team? It makes no sense.

“He shouldn’t have been picked for the national team. Yeah, he has done okay for England but at some point it will go wrong.”
