Harry Maguire has been advised to help Manchester United to win trophies if he want to be recognized as one of the elite
Harry Maguire has been a key figure for Manchester United since his arrival from Leicester City but has been warned to help them win major trophies.
Ex Red Devils center-back Nemanja Vidic has called on Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire to add trophies to his game if he want to be considered as a top defender.
The English international joined Man United from Leicester City in 2019 and has been a mainstay in the first-team since his debut.
The 28-year-old captained United to second place in last seasons Premier League and Europa League, but has been tasked to do more, if he want to be regarded as an elite defender.
Speaking to The Athletic news paper, Nemanja Vidic said:
“Harry Maguire looks confident and comfortable, even more for his country than for Manchester United.
He’s a defender who is still improving, but if he wants to be recognised at the highest level he has to win trophies. When I look at Maguire I see a defender who is good at everything, 8/10 at everything.
“He’s not as good on the ball or as fast as Rio Ferdinand was for example, and he doesn’t tackle or head like I did, but he has quality across his game. He’s fast enough, he’s strong enough, he can jump and play the ball, his positioning is fine.”
Nemanja Vidic won ten major honours with Manchester United including the 2008 famous Champions League victory over Chelsea at Moscow.
Maguire is currently on International duty with the Three Lions as they prepare to win their first silverware since the 60’s.
