Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs is confident that his former teammate Harry Maguire will be back to his best soon.
Maguire has seen a rough couple of months, especially at the start of the season. However, Fuchs is sure that his former teammate will prove to be an excellent signing for the Reds.
“You can only know what’s going on when you are really behind closed doors,” the Austrian told Goal . “No one has those insights but the way I experienced Harry when he was here was that he is always trying his best to perform well.
“Sometimes, you want to try to give your best but it simply doesn’t work the way everyone wishes. Not only the player himself or the fans, but everybody.
“I am sure he is strong enough to get through that. He was a great signing for Leicester and he will be for Manchester United. I am sure he will get back to his best.
“When you are the last line of defence, then people find it easy to point fingers at you. Defending, like attacking, is a team effort, though, so it should be seen that way.”
“There must be some good scouting going on at Leicester as we always bring in the right players!” Fuchs enthused.
“The manager has precise ideas about the right player profile, and how he sees the squad developing. The players we sign have to be ready too, as they are thrown [into the first team] fast.
“It is well known that Leicester found the right answers to the problems caused by Chilwell and Maguire leaving, through a combination of bringing in younger players or relying on experienced players who were already at the club.
