Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on Harry Maguire after the 26-year old impressed on his debut for the club.
The Red Devils began the Premier League in dramatic fashion by trouncing Frank Lampard’s Chelsea side 4-0 at Old Trafford.
Maguire was brilliant at the heart of the defence and always kept the Chelsea attackers at bay. His performances earned the centre-back the Man of the Match award and Jose Mourinho’s praise.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea manager said: “”He fully deserved the award, he was solid like a rock. You can be very dangerous in attack but if you feel that a mistake is around the corner it takes your confidence away and you don’t play as well. When you feel there is something that allows you to play you are much more confident.
“As I always said Lindelof can be a very good player. With Maguire it can be a very good partnership.”
Maguire wasn’t the only summer signing who impressed as Aaron Wan-Bissaka was terrific on the right-flank while Daniel James scored on his debut after coming on as a substitute for Marcus Rashford.
It was a dream start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side who netted four goals past Chelsea in the Premier League for the first time in 24 years and did so at Old Trafford for the first time since 1965.
