After an outstanding performance on his Manchester United debut, Paul Pogba rained praise down on Harry Maguire as he nicknamed the defender as “The Beast”.
Maguire, coveted by former United manager Jose Mourinho last year, cleared the ball more times than any other player, completed the most interceptions and clocked up an 86 percent passing accuracy on his debut. The former Leicester City defender also helped United keep their first league clean sheet since February 24th.
Pogba revealed Maguire new nickname as he lauded his performance, "As I call him [Maguire] - 'the Beast'. Honestly, as you saw, he was really impressive. He is a leader. He fits right in with us in training. We talked about controlling the defence well and he has a good understanding with Victor [Lindelof].
"It was a very good match to start with from the whole team."
