Nemanja Vidic: Harry Maguire

Manchester United’s legendary center-back Nemanja Vidic believes that Harry Maguire needs to win a trophy before he can be considered as one of the best. Maguire has been in the heart of the defense ever since joining from Leicester City in 2019 for £80m. Maguire is now the captain of Manchester United and helped them reach the final of the Europa League where they lost to Villarreal. He has continued that form into Euro 2020 where England are yet to concede a goal from open play. England take on Italy in the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley.

“Harry Maguire looks confident and comfortable, even more for his country than for Manchester United,” Nemanja Vidic said. “He’s a defender who is still improving, but if he wants to be recognized at the highest level he has to win trophies. When I look at Maguire I see a defender who is good at everything, 8/10 at everything.”

“He’s not as good on the ball or as fast as Rio Ferdinand was for example, and he doesn’t tackle or head as I did, but he has quality across his game. He’s fast enough, he’s strong enough, he can jump and play the ball, his positioning is fine,” he added.

Another Manchester United player that has impressed Vidic is Luke Shaw. He has created nine chances in the tournament so far, third-highest among defenders. Shaw also has three assists to his name, the second-highest in the tournament so far.

“Shaw came to United just after I left. He has suffered from injuries but was one of United’s best players last season.” Vidic said. “We always knew Shaw was dangerous in attack but he’s improved a lot defensively, especially his positioning and especially when his team plays three at the back.”
