The Manchester Evening News reports that Jose Mourinho has showered praises on Harry Maguire who made his debut for the Red Devils on Sunday against Chelsea.
Manchester United started the 2019-2020 on a winning start with a 4-0 win against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Maguire was handed his United debut and as well as impressing at the back was instrumental in United’s second goal, which was scored by Anthony Matial, as he won back possession on the end of the area.
Mourinho who wanted to sign the defender last summer, was impressed with what he saw.
“I think he is fully deserved of the man of the match,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports. “He was solid like a rock and as we know it is very important for the team to have that, not just the tactical knowledge but the personality and sense of reading the game and being alert all of the time and having confidence to play, he was fantastic.”
United have been looking to build a solid central defensive partnership for years and Mourinho believes they now have that with Lindelof and Maguire as the former Leicester man’s arrival has given United confidence in attack.
