Manchester United defender, Harry Maguire has come out to say that Raphael Varane’s arrival at the club gives everyone a lift. He recently revealed that the presence of the Frenchman will warn starters that they’ll always have to fight for their place.
According to him, everyone in the squad is obviously looking forward to working with the ex-Real Madrid man and he’ll surely improve MUFC’s defence.
Maguire added that Manchester United currently has amazing defenders at the club and this should count for something this season.
His words, “To bring players into this club, obviously of his calibre as well, it’s going to be really, really exciting,”
“Everyone in the squad is obviously looking forward to working with him. I think one thing that it does is it boosts our defensive options.”
“We’ve got an amazing number of centre-backs now at this club, all international players who are all proven in the Premier League. You’ve seen again how well Victor played [against Leeds].”
“I think you’ve seen what he’s won over his career. He’s played in some of the top teams about – the French squad and the Real Madrid team – and he’s won absolutely everything.”
“I think he’ll bring that winning mentality to the club and he’ll also bring his footballing ability to the club. Like I said, bringing players in is great for the squad. It lifts the squad, it’s great for the competition for the squad – not just as a centre-back but just in any position.”
“We thrive off it, that’s how we play. At one of the biggest clubs in the world you don’t expect to have an easy ride and have no competition for places.”
