Harry Maguire enjoys an early morning brunch with his fiancee Fern Hawkins and sister Daisy … hours after Manchester United suffered a nightmare for the Champions League campaign
A disappointing Champions League result was set aside on Wednesday morning as Manchester United defender Harry Maguire stepped out for breakfast with his loved ones.
The 28-year-old was joined by fiancee Fern Hawkins and younger sister Daisy during an appearance at Juniper Cafe in leafy Wilmslow, Cheshire.
Maguire looked upbeat despite his side’s embarrassing start to their last European campaign in Switzerland, where they were beaten 2-1 by the Young Boys minnows.

There were as many red faces as there were red jerseys at Bern’s Stadion Wankdorf after a terrible back pass from Jesse Lingard allowed the home side to score the winning goal after a promising start from the visitors.
However, the fiasco was momentarily forgotten as Maguire made the most of the current heat wave in England during what appeared to be a morning away from United’s training facilities at Carrington.
The England defender looked relaxed in a nylon tracksuit top and skinny jeans while enjoying an outdoor brunch with Daisy and her longtime partner.

Maguire is confident Manchester United will recover from their nightmarish Champions League debut, but knows they need to eliminate the indiscipline and mistakes that cost them the defeat to Young Boys.
A friendly-looking squad started with the Red Devils’ easiest away game, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stammering side were cropped in Switzerland on Tuesday night.
Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring at Stadion Wankdorf, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card in the 35th minute put United on the back foot.

Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu rightly leveled Young Boys in the second half before a negligent backpass from Jesse Lingard saw substitute Jordan Siebatcheu seal a superb 2-1 victory in stoppage time.
“Of course, discipline is an integral part of tournament football,” United captain Maguire said after the game.
“For example, if it was a knockout game and we come out of the competition because we’re down to 10 men, I’m sure everyone will hit each other.
“It’s fortunate that this is the group’s first game and we have a lot of time to bounce back.”
