Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has tipped Harry Maguire to live up to his world-record price tag following his summer arrival from Leicester City.
The England international usurped Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk as the most expensive defender in football history when he moved to Old Trafford in an £80m deal during the most recent transfer window.
Maguire has made an assured start to life at the club, and Vidic is confident that more is still to come from him despite admitting that the defence as a whole does still need improvement.
"I think he's had a pretty good start. Obviously we have big expectations of him, he was a big signing," Vidic is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
"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.
"We need the defence to improve, we all know how important the defence is in winning trophies."
Maguire has started all five of United's Premier League games so far this season, helping his side to keep two clean sheets.body check tags ::
