Cristiano Ronaldo is praised by Harry Maguire as being "magnificent."

Cristiano Ronaldo's Manchester United teammate Harry Maguire has shown sympathy, acknowledging that he knows how it feels to be the target of a media frenzy. 

The United captain is frequently the object of fan criticism, but this summer the attention has been on Ronaldo, who has begged to leave United in order to play in the Champions League.

Ronaldo may play for United in their season-opening match against Brighton on Sunday due to Anthony Martial's injury, although a transfer has not yet taken place. 

When asked what Ronaldo brings to this United team by Sky Sports, Maguire laughed and replied, "Goals!" 

Cristiano is a fantastic player and man to have around us, he continued. I am familiar with what it's like to be the subject of a lot of media conjecture, but he takes the bulk of it.

"Everything he does is closely scrutinized. I believe that because of the club's size, this is what you can expect from playing for it. "That's football, that's the sport we play, there is a line that can be crossed and there are things we can do in this country to prevent that," he said. "On the other hand, when things are going well, you get a lot of praise."

Maguire's praise comes after claims made elsewhere that the center-back was involved in a heated argument with Ronaldo in the locker room over who should lead the team. These claims have been vehemently refuted. 

On Sunday, when the Seagulls arrive and the Erik ten Hag period begins, the two might start on the same side of the field.
