And fines chief Matic, 32, decided Maguire was guilty of using his phone in a no go area at the club’s Carrington
HQ which led to a pay-out, something the center-back still disputes.
Maguire told the official Utd Podcast: “I’ve been fined once which is still debatable. It’s crazy but I let Nemanja
do it. I took the hit and put the money in the pot.

“When you meet in the gym before training for pre-activation you are not allowed your phone.
We did pre-activation, I didn’t have my phone.
“But then you go outside to put your boots on and you aren’t allowed to go on your phone in that period.
I had my phone and carried it out with me.
“I wasn’t on my phone because straight after training I was going to put my trainers back on and go up
for a massage instead of coming all the way back.
“I could have gone straight to a massage and Nemanja fined me for that. He’s strict with everyone so I’m happy.
I can set the standard.”
Maguire and Matic keep it simple when it comes to the fining system for their team-mates.
And by now, you would think United players would be used to getting penalties!
