Former Manchester United Manager, Jose Mourinho, has described Harry Maguire’s performance in United’s 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea, as “solid as a rock”
Maguire was voted Man of the Match
He was credited to have made more clearances, more interceptions and more blocks than any other player on the pitch.
“I think he fully deserved Man of the Match.
“I think he was solid like a rock and as we know it is very important for a team to have that.
“Not just the tactical knowledge but that personality, that sense of reading the game, being alert all the time, the confidence to play. He was fantastic, absolutely deserved.
“A team can be very dangerous in attack but if you feel that a defensive mistake is just around the corner, you don’t play as well.
“When you can feel that there is something that really allows you to play, you are much more confident. [Victor] Lindelof can be a very good player and with Maguire I think they can be a very good couple,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports.
