Jonny Evans Believes Harry Maguire can Emulate Virgil Van Dijk’s Success

football

Maguire featured for Man United for the first time in Sunday’s 4-0 defeat of Chelsea, and his former team-mate believes the United no.5 can follow the footsteps of Liverpoo’s Van Dijk.

Maguire’s £80m transfer last week broke the previous world-record fee for a defender, set by Liverpool when they signed the Dutch centre-back from Southampton on January 2018.

Van Dijk went on to help Liverpool to win the Champions League final and earning himself the PFA Player of the Year award, and Jonny Evans thinks Maguire can have a similar impact at Manchester United.

Evens said:

“You can see comparisons in their games.

“Both are great on the ball, and Harry has got explosive pace people don’t see. He is powerful and good in the air.

“Everyone will compare the transfer fees but it’s so difficult to judge transfer fees nowadays. We are all human and it is weird we get traded for money.

“In the transfer market it’s all supply and demand and things can go up and down at any moment. The most important thing is for him to be judged on how he plays.

“I don’t have any worries about him there. He is tailor-made for Manchester United, it was a great move for him.

“He’s a player they needed. He’s got a really likeable nature about him. He will be a real hit there, he is a fantastic player.”
