Manchester United’s calamitous Harry Maguire left Paul Pogba bleeding after booting his team-mate in the head in their win over Norwich City.
A hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo helped the Red Devils earn a 3-2 home victory over the Premier League’s bottom club on Saturday after they had been pegged back. However, Ronaldo’s winner only came after Maguire had left Pogba needing treatment after somehow managing to boot him in the head whilst jumping for a header.
Maguire had ended up falling forwards as he jumped for a corner, with his feet flying upwards and in the direction of the Frenchman’s head.
Pogba was unaware of the boot coming towards him and was caught on the side of the head as he watched Ronaldo’s header drop into the hands of Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul.
United’s medical staff were soon seen attending to Pogba on the pitch at Old Trafford as he appeared to be left with a cut to his head after Maguire’s clumsy collision with him.
This incident comes just a week after Maguire appeared to call for a handball against his own team during last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat away to Everton.
Fans quickly flocked to social media to react to Maguire’s antics against Norwich, with one tweeting: “Hahahaha that Maguire is the s***.”

Another joked: “In today’s episode of The Life Of Maguire, he backheels Pogba in the head.” Whilst another added: “Harry Maguire isn’t real.”
Prior to injuring Pogba, Maguire had already been accused of being at fault for Norwich’s first goal as Teemu Pukki ghosted past him to cross for Kieran Dowell to score.
This came after Ronaldo had fired United into a two-goal lead and they had been pegged back to 2-2 by the lowly Canaries by the 52nd minute after Pukki turned scorer to equalise.
Luckily for Maguire and the rest of the United defence, though, Ronaldo completed his second hat-trick of the season with a stunning free-kick 14 minutes from time to seal victory and take his tally for the season to 21 in all competitions.
