Man Utd star Harry Maguire looks unrecognisable as fresh-faced teenager in incredible childhood throwback snap | The Sun

HARRY MAGUIRE is one of the most recognisable footballers in Europe.

As Manchester United captain and an England stalwart, it's hard to miss big ol' 6ft 4ins 'Slabhead'.

But an incredible photo from his childhood days shows Maguire, now 29, looking very different in his school uniform.

He still has the famous wide jaw and dark hair as he sits behind his younger brother Laurence in their blue shirts and navy-and-white striped ties.

Older sibling Joe is seen in a blazer in an inset.

Another amazing snap from a few years later shows the three brothers – who are all footballers – sat in the garden, presumably at their Sheffield home.

Smiling Harry, whose real name is actually Jacob, is decked out in his beige coat, matching with Joe, and holding up their younger sister Daisy.

The Red Devils and Three Lions star – who also excelled at table tennis, rugby and cross country – was a "remarkable" pupil at St Mary's Catholic School in Chesterfield and smashed his GCSE exams.

Former deputy headteacher, Sue Cain said: "He was never in any trouble, he had such a good attitude.

"I taught all three Maguire brothers, they all absolutely loved their sport.

"Harry was such a modest lad.

"He had his head screwed on even at that age. He did everything you asked him to do and he never questioned why. He was popular, and he was huge.

"Even at a young age he was very tall and he towered over teams.

"He got A* and A grades in his GCSEs. He was very capable academically."

Maguire broke through on the football stage with Sheffield United then had three years with Hull before joining Leicester in 2017.

It was during his time with the Foxes he earned his call-up to the England senior squad, starring at the 2018 World Cup and then joining United for a world-record £85million a year later.

However, he has endured a tough time finding his best form at Old Trafford.

And his club future may be away from the Theatre of Dreams.
