Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is targeting Leeds after they missed out on promotion to the Premier League following their play-off final defeat against Southampton.


Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has targeted Leeds after failing to secure promotion to the Premier League.

Leeds fell at the last hurdle in the Championship Play-off final when they were beaten by Southampton at Wembley.

Adam Armstrong’s first-half strike ensured Daniel Farke’s men will play in the second tier again next season, much to Maguire’s delight.

The England international showed his delight on Instagram when he posted a photo of his TV screen after Leeds were beaten.

He wrote: ‘I hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday’, with a heart and red emoji.’

Maguire’s contribution relates to Manchester United’s fierce rivalry with Leeds, which remains one of the biggest in the country.

It was a weekend to remember for the 31-year-old as he lifted the FA Cup with the Red Devils on Saturday.

Goals from Alejandro Garnach and Kobbie Mainoo ensured Erik ten Haga’s men ended the season with silverware after a dismal campaign.

This result also secured the club a place in next season’s Europa League, having missed out due to league position.

The Red Devils finished the Premier League campaign in eighth place – the club’s lowest finish since 1990 – and missed out on the Champions League and Carabao Cup.

The poor season came after more significant investment in the Ten Hag squad, with an initial £64m spent on striker Rasmus Hojlund, £55m on midfielder Mason Mount and £43.8m on goalkeeper Andre Onan.
