Maguire: Personal Accolades Will Mean Very Little If We Don’t Survive

12 May 2017

Maguire was named Fans’ Player and Players’ Player of the Year at the Club’s official awards ceremony this week and while the centre back was delighted to receive the votes of supporters and colleagues alike, he wants to top it off by helping his side to climb out of the bottom three.

“It’s been a good season from a personal point of view and it was nice to pick up a couple of awards this week,” said Maguire.

“It all helps with my progression, but it won’t mean very much to me if we can’t get ourselves out of the relegation zone.

“We’ve worked hard all year and we want to make sure we’re fighting again in the Premier League next season.

“We still believe there is a twist to come. This time last week we were in the driving seat, but this league is unpredictable and who’s to say there won’t be another turn in it this weekend.

“We’re all focussed on going to Crystal Palace on Sunday and getting the result that we need.”
