10 footballers that have been booed by their own fans - including Man Utd, Chelsea and Real Madrid stars

Here are ten players who, like Man Utd’s Harry Maguire, have suffered the indignity of being booed by their own fanbase.

Pre-season football tours are usually enjoyed by a global fan base as an opportunity to watch their team that they will otherwise not be able to see in the flesh.

Friendlies tend to be easy watching, light-heared affairs, however a portion of Manchester United’s fans used their clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday as a chance to boo captain Harry Maguire.

Maguire has previously been the subject of abuse during a friendly between England and Ivory Coast, however it appears that wasn’t the end of it.
