Harry Maguire has earned the praise of Manchester United fans and Martin Keown for
his five star performance during his Old Trafford debut.
Centre back Maguire arrived at the Red Devils last week from Leicester City for a record
£80million fee for a defender.
He managed to live up to the transfer fee in his opening outing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men
– as he was part of a 4-0 victory over Chelsea , Marcus Rashford’s brace and goals from Anthony
Martial and Daniel James secured the victory.
Maguire cleared the ball more times, made more interceptions and also won 71 per cent
of his aerial duels, which we come to expect from the towering Sheffield-native.
Mourinho said: “I think he [Maguire] fully deserved the man of the match.
“I think he was solid like a rock and as we know it’s very important for a team to have
that not just the tactical knowledge but that personality, that sense of reading the game
of being alert all the time and confident to play.
“He was fantastic, he was fantastic. Absolutely deserved.”
