Harry Maguire has a magnet on his head - Man Utd boss, Solskjaer

Share This

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his confidence in his captain Harry Maguire.

Maguire signed for £80 million ($98m) move to Old Trafford from Leicester last summer. He has grown into the United first team under Solskjaer.

The 27-year-old has featured in 44 games for United this season, scoring three goals.

If you recall he scored the winning goal in the 2-1 win against Norwich City in the quarter final FA Cup last week.

The Norwegian boss told United's official website: “I think his performances on the pitch say it all. He’s become club captain, he’s a leader and he’s chipping in with goals, so I’m very happy with Harry.

"He’s a big lad and he gets better and better the more he plays. I think we’ll see him improving more and more the games he plays. He’ll get his sharpness from games.”

Asked whether Maguire will start weighing in with more headed goals as he looks to get on the end of dead balls, Solskjaer responded: “Definitely, and he should do. Tim Krul had a great save on Saturday from his header and we know that he’s a threat to anyone.

"I said it when we played Leicester last season it’s like he has a magnet on his head with the ball and we’re now getting used to him and his movement, with Bruno [Fernandes] coming up with some good deliveries. And we know when Harry is in there then anything can happen.”

The Red Devils will be back in Premier League action away at Brighton on Tuesday.

Manchester United boss Solskjaer insists there will be no excuses for his side as they look to extend their 14-match unbeaten run.

He added: “That’s the normal routine for a Man United player. You play midweek, weekend, midweek, weekend… you do that all the time.

"You can discuss other teams and say they have 24 hours more recovery and blah blah blah, but it doesn’t fit into my thinking. As soon as you sign for Man United you should be ready to play up to 60 games a season with a game every three or four days.”
