Ten Hag and Maguire may not have the best relationship, with the coach dropping the United skipper from the starting lineup this season.
However, ten Hag has been sending messages to Maguire during the tournament in Qatar, ensuring his star defender is in the right frame of mind for games.
“While I am away, they [Manchester United] want me to focus fully on England," Maguire said to reporters.
“But I have had a couple of nice texts from them saying how well I've performed and congratulations on reaching the quarter-finals. It's nice.
“I am sure they'll be watching the games but Erik [ten Hag] will be supporting the Oranje army. It is good to feel the support of them."
