“People don’t listen to the outside world, Harry [Maguire] train 100% every day. Harry will give 100% whether he starts the game or not.
“We don’t care about the outside world because, as I said, the only thing that matters are the opinions on the inside. The opinions inside are the most important.
“If you’re doing well in practice, then who’s a little jerk on Twitter who’s going to tell you not to start a game? Who is he? I do not get it. I really don’t get it. Harry is a top guy, top captain, top player.”
