FOOTBALL fans are shocked to learn a little-known fact about Manchester United captain Harry Maguire.
Everyone knows he cost the Red Devils an eye-watering £80million, some know he started his career at Sheffield United, but few know his real name.
Yes, Harry is not actually his first name, but his middle name.
Maguire's first name is Jacob, but he has gone by Harry from an early age.
The United centre-back, 29, has also gone by the affectionate nickname 'Slabhead' – earned thanks to his aerial prowess as well as his rather large skull.
Fans were amused to discover Maguire's real name after taking a peak at his Wikipedia profile.

He said: "The criticism of Gareth Southgate for playing him because he wasn't playing for Manchester United, I thought was nonsense.
"He's been England's best centre-back, just through his performances, in the two tournaments.
"He was in team of the tournament in the last Euros.
"So, Gareth Southgate had to pick him, just to see where he was fitness wise.
"So, I had no problem picking him in the games, they obviously didn't go well and that is then a big worry, because he doesn't normally perform like that for England.
