Don’t get us wrong.
Harry Maguire is a very good defender, and he’s going to improve Manchester United’s defence.
Despite the extortionate money they paid for him, he’s better than what they have.
But the automatic comparisons to the world’s best defender, Virgil van Dijk, purely because Maguire now plays for United, are just stupid.
Let’s wait until he guides his side to consecutive Champions League Finals first, shall we?
Last night against Wolves, United drew 1-1 and Maguire was put on the floor by Raul Jimenez – meaning it took him just two games to be dribbled past an opponent.
In 54 Premier League games for the Reds, nobody has done this to van Dijk…
There’s levels to this game!
Raul Jimenez glided by Harry Maguire in just his second game with Manchester United.
In 54 Premier League games with Liverpool, Virgil Van Dijk still hasn't been dribbled past.
