Roy Keane still unsure over United new boy's defensive capabilities

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane still has question marks over Harry Maguire's defensive capabilities, despite the Englishman settling well at the club. 

Maguire joined the Red Devils in the recently-concluded summer transfer in a deal worth £80 million, a record for a defender, and has arguably put in assured performances. 

Despite positive reviews from different players on his ability and genuine qualities, Keane, who is one of the club's all-time iconic players thinks he still has some work to do. 

"I think he's done OK," Keane told ITV.

"We were talking about how good he is on the ball, but defensively I still think he's... I still have one or two question marks over him," 

"I always worry about his pace on the turn, I remember the first goal against Crystal Palace where he's not doing the basics - covering round his other center-half," 

"Listen he's 26 years of age now, you're worried if you're pointing these things out to him."

The defender has been hailed by teammates at United, with Pogba revealing they even nicknamed him 'the Beast', owing to his defensive play. 

He was nominated for the Player of the Month award alongside fellow summer recruits Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with the former winning after garnering majority of the votes.
