After ‘losing confidence for six months’ following a horror game, Manchester United legend Gary Neville had to see a psychologist.
Gary Neville has revealed that during his playing days, he had to see a psychologist after two howlers in a game at the 2000 Club World Cup.
The former Manchester United player compared his situation to that of Harry Maguire, who has recently come under fire for his performances.
After scoring for England against Albania, Maguire cupped his fingers to his ears, an apparent nod to the skeptics, which Neville, unlike Roy Keane, has defended.
Neville was criticized after two errors at the back for United in the 2000 Club World Cup, prompting him to seek treatment from a psychiatrist.
“Harry Maguire, along with a few others, is the future of the club, so I have no doubts about him,” he told the Daily Mail.
“Like me, he’s going through a two- or three-year period of craziness.”

Summer vacation is limited to only three weeks.
“I get it when he puts his hands to his ears.”
I once went over to some Liverpool supporters and gave them a lot of money.
“I once played Vasco da Gama and gave up two pass backs in three minutes, brought in Edmundo and Romario, and we lost the World Club Championship. I lost my confidence for six months and had to see a psychologist.”

“So I’ve been where Harry Maguire might be right now.”
“So when he puts his hands to his ears, all I care about is whether he regrets it after the game or if he’s fine with it.”
“And if he’s okay with it, I’m okay with it as well.”
After only six wins in 12 games across all competitions, a slew of Maguire’s United teammates have come under fire as well.
Fred, in particular, has his detractors, with pundit Keane claiming that he would GRAB Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and demand to know why the Brazilian is on the pitch.
Nobody feels the pressure more than Solskjaer, who is on the verge of being fired at Old Trafford.
In order to work out a season-saving plan, the Norwegian has held crisis talks with Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo, and other senior figures at the club.
However, for the ex-striker, the writing may already be on the wall.
United’s top brass have made Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers their top choice to succeed Solskjaer, according to SunSport exclusively.
In preparation for the job, the former Liverpool manager is even looking for a home in Cheshire.
