Nemanja Vidic has said that he has been impressed with the performances to date from Manchester United defender Harry Maguire, saying that the 26-year-old “has made a pretty good start” to life at Old Trafford.
Maguire has started all five of the Red Devils’ Premier League games so far this season – keeping two clean sheets in the process – and, speaking to Goal, former United defender Vidic said that he will turn out to be a good signing for the club.
“I think he’s had a pretty good start. Obviously we have big expectations of him, he was a big signing,” the 37-year-old said. “We need the defence to improve, we all know how important the defence is in winning trophies.
“If you want to win trophies, you need to have a strong defence, don’t lose many goals. Obviously he’s still new.
“He just came, he didn’t have a pre-season with the team. I think better games are coming from him and I think he’ll be a good signing.”
In other United news, the club’s stance on whether they should attempt to sign a Premier League midfielder has reportedly been decided after a meeting between Solskjaer and Ed Woodward.
