The threat to Harry Maguire was reported to police, who performed a search and found no suspicious objects.
A spokesman for the Manchester United captain made a statement on the matter.
According to him, obviously, the safety of his family and those around him is Harry’s number one priority.
Manchester United Captain, Harry Maguire received a bomb threat, prompting police and sniffer dogs to visit his home following the Premier League game against Liverpool.
After his home was put under surveillance due to a bomb threat, Harry Maguire is said to have assured friends that he would not be forced out of Manchester United.
Following the email threat, which occurred after United’s 4-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool, police and sniffer dogs were dispatched to his residence.
Maguire’s home, where he lives with his partner and two daughters, was subjected to extensive searches.
At the time, a representative for Maguire said, “He will continue to prepare as usual for this weekend’s match, and we will not be saying further at this time.”
According to The Sun, Maguire has told friends that he will not be forced out by the antics of one “cowardly fan.”
If that [that a fan was responsible] turns out to be the case, “they are an utter disgrace to the name of this proud football club,” an insider told the publication.
A statement from the force: “On Wednesday, April 20th, Cheshire Police were contacted about reports of a bomb threat at an address in the Wilmslow area.”
“There were no evacuations, but a police explosives dog was dispatched to the property on Thursday, April 21, to undertake a precautionary search of the gardens and surrounding area.”
The search yielded no suspicious materials.
“At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with the bomb threat,” says the statement.
Maguire was seen arriving at Man United training on Thursday, as the Red Devils prepare for their trip to Arsenal this weekend.
Ralf Rangnick’s team is three points behind their fifth-place rivals despite having played one more game.
By defeating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, Arsenal moved clear of United.
They did, however, lose the reverse encounter at Old Trafford in December, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s second-half penalty giving the Red Devils a 3-2 victory.
As Manchester United suffered yet another humiliating defeat against Liverpool, analyst Graeme Souness exposed Maguire’s talents and weaknesses.
The £80 million defender also played against Liverpool at Anfield, where Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick helped the visitors to a 5-0 victory.
When asked about the Old Trafford defeat, Maguire told Sky Sports, “That was such a low point, like you say, the lowest point of the season, one of the lowest points of my career, and I’m sure the rest of the boys’, without international football involved in it.”
At Anfield, though, the former Leicester player was unable to keep Jurgen Klopp’s side at bay, with Salah scoring two more goals.
“He has qualities,” Souness remarked on Sky Sports. “Good with the ball and in the air.”
“He sees the game okay, but he isn’t the fastest, and it’s extremely easy to look at Manchester United and blame everything on your defenders.”
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane added, “It’s been a difficult season for the squad and Harry.”
“You’re going to lose football games this season,” he continued, “but United hasn’t shown enough pride when they’ve lost.”
