The response intensified after the 3-1 win over Scotland when the Manchester United defender clumsily prodding a low cross into his personal web within the 67th minute.
After the match, Southgate described the unfavourable therapy of Maguire as a “joke,” and on Thursday, Maguire’s mother made an identical assertion.
In an Instagram put up, she mentioned: “As a mum seeing the level of negative and abusive comments which my son is receiving from some fans, pundits and the media is disgraceful and totally unacceptable to any walk of life, never mind someone who works his socks off for club and country.
“I used to be there within the stand [at Hampden] as traditional. It’s not acceptable what’s been created, over nothing. I perceive that within the soccer world there are ups and downs, positives and negatives however what Harry receives has gone far past ‘soccer’. For me seeing him undergo what he is going by is just not okay. I might hate to must see some other mother and father or gamers undergo this sooner or later, particularly the younger girls and boys breaking by the ranks right now.
“Harry has a massive heart and it’s a good job he’s mentally strong and can handle it as others may not be able to. I wish this sort of abuse on nobody.”
Maguire mentioned he can cope with hostile therapy from opposition supporters and that it takes the stress off his England teammates after the defender was mocked by Scotland followers following his personal aim.
Maguire described his therapy by Scottish followers as “a little bit of banter.”
“It pretty much takes the pressure away from my teammates and puts it all on myself,” he informed reporters after England’s 3-1 win. “It makes them play better, for sure.
“We knew coming right here, if you hear the nationwide anthem and the best way they disrespect that, we knew it could be hostile and within the second half I bought most of it.
“I am happy to go with that, don’t worry about that.”
Maguire, who joined United from Leicester City for £80 million ($99.94m) in 2019, was stripped of the membership captaincy by supervisor Erik ten Hag in July.
He has struggled for first-team soccer at the Premier League aspect, though he turned down a transfer to West Ham this summer time.
“The first four weeks were hard because it was one game a week and the manager didn’t select me, but we have lots of games coming up now and I am sure I will play lots of games,” he mentioned.
