MANCHESTER UNITED captain Harry Maguire was spotted at Old Trafford’s stands cheering the team’s youngsters in the FA Youth Cup.
United‘s Under-18s took on Wolves’ Under-18s in the semi-finals and won 3-0 thanks to Charlie McNeill’s brace and Alejandro Garnacho’s strike.

And Maguire seemed to be impressed with the youth squad’s performance as he watched them compete with a big smile on his face.
The centre-back has come under fire several times this season due to some inconsistent performances at the back.
But the 29-year-old is still highly likely to star for United against Tottenham on Saturday at Old Trafford.
However, club legend Dimitar Berbatov has advised interim manager Ralf Rangnick to drop Maguire against Spurs.
Berbatov told Betfair: “I played with some great leaders at United, such as Nemanja Vidic and Wayne Rooney, and when things are not going well for the team the finger is always pointed at the captain.
“Harry Maguire can perform better. He knows that.
“The mistakes he is making are damaging his ability to lead the team. He needs to correct his positioning and work on his decision-making.
“It’s not easy, when you are under pressure, but I have been there and that is the nature of playing for a top club. It is part of being a professional. You need to deal with it.
“Ralf Rangnick can step in here. Maybe he needs to give Maguire a rest and give somebody else a chance.”
