England defender Harry Maguire has vowed to keep his feet on the ground after his heroics for his Country at this summers World Cup in Russia.
The Leicester City centre-back hugely enhanced his reputation, with a string of commanding displays and was arguably the Three Lions stand out performer.
It has been a remarkable couple of seasons for the Sheffield born 25-year-old, who has gone from being a bit part player at Hull City to an England regular – and is now being linked with a £50 million move to Manchester United.
However, Maguire has revealed that he will not let all the attention change him, and he is determined to stay grounded despite his new star status:
“I’ll try to keep my feet on the ground and stay as grounded as I can,” he said in a post match press conference after his sides 2-0 third place playoff defeat to Belgium.
“I won’t change and my family won’t change either. I’ll go home and carry on doing the same things I did before.
“There are mixed emotions. We’re really proud with the way we did as a team but at the end of the day we are extremely disappointed as we feel we had an amazing opportunity to reach a World Cup final. It is one that people might say we may never get again but we have to take our chance when it comes and we are really disappointed.”
