Man Utd Star Controversially Mocked By Academy Player

Following an error in Manchester United's away draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Friday, one of the team's key players was controversially ridiculed by a Red Devils academy footballer.

Man Utd Legend Slams 'Overrated' De Gea After Error

Despite a bright start, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side found themselves 1-0 down after 27 minutes when Steven Bergwijn ran through their defence with relative ease before finding the back of the net.

While his effort perhaps should have been saved by David de Gea, defender and captain Harry Maguire was also at fault for allowing the Dutchman to skip past him before striking the ball at goal.

According to Manchester Evening News, a young academy player by the name of Dillon Hoogewerf caused a stir when he shared a video that mocked Maguire for his mistake.

The 17-year-old striker reportedly took to Instagram to share a video clip of a man chasing down a cyclist before falling over, with that man in the video edited to be the United skipper.

The caption accompanying the video read: "What the back of Bergwijn's boots saw when he ran past Harry Maguire."

It is unknown what action, if any, the club will take against the youngster.

Solskjaer Sends Pogba A Message

Luckily for Maguire, his error did not end up costing United all three points on the night, with Bruno Fernandes equalising from the penalty spot in the 81st minute following a foul on Paul Pogba in the Spurs box.

Do you think academy players should be more careful with what they post on social media? Let us know in the comments section below.
