Why Harry Maguire will be just like Virgil van Dijk at Liverpool for Man Utd - Souness

HARRY MAGUIRE will have a similar impact on Manchester United to the one Virgil van Dijk has had at Liverpool - but Manchester City should have signed him instead.

Souness is a big fan of Maguire and believes he is the modern centre-back United need so desperately.

But he is surprised Manchester City did not beat their rivals to the 26-year-old’s signature.

“He’s the real deal for me,” Souness said of Maguire.

“His character, the qualities he has, his reading of the game.

“When you think the way the game’s evolved, it’s never been more important than it is today for a centre-half to be able to see the picture and to be able to deliver what he sees.

“The way the game’s evolved everyone’s playing out from the back now. That’s where the game generally starts, nine times out of 10, goalkeepers rarely kick it long.

“So your centre-back in the middle of the pitch is generally what your central midfield player used to be.

“So I think in that respect he will make a big difference to United. He will have a calming effect on the rest of the team.

“I would expect him to have the influence that Van Dijk has had at Liverpool.

“I think he’s a great signing. I’m surprised City didn’t break the bank to get him, if they have a bank that could be broken.

“But I think he is sensational, I think he is everything you want in a centre-half today.

“The thing I like about him, when I see Virgil van Dijk play, this is maybe because Leicester go behind and Liverpool don’t very often, but when they are behind or when they’d go behind at Leicester, he’d step into midfield and he will try and make a difference.

“He will come out and try and be a midfield player.

“Virgil stays in his position and is happy to just make sure it’s tight at the back.

“I think [Maguire] is the real deal.”

Defensively both Maguire and VVD are the same but Maguire beats VVD in attacking sense

Sign partners so pro. Sign players so wols.

Yabo is our 23rd partners Liao. Fap fap fap.

23 partners never enough. 8 midfielders more than enough. Woody logic.

Man Utd star Wan-Bissaka hailed as ‘best right-back in the league’ in Liverpool comparison

MANCHESTER UNITED star Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the best right-back in the Premier League with better defensive qualities than Liverpool ace Trent Alexander-Arnold.

That’s the view of United hero Paul Parker with Wan-Bissaka impressing on his competitive Red Devils debut.

And Parker believes Wan-Bissaka is better than anyone else in the league, including Alexander-Arnold.

“I’ve said it many times, I watched him often last year, I just like what he does,” Parker told WeAreTheBusbyBoys podcast. “People talk about the lad at Liverpool [Alexander-Arnold] but he can’t defend like Wan Bissaka, whose defending and positioning is very good. He wants to defend, he loves it.

“And every time he won a tackle (yesterday) there was no doubt he won it cleanly. You would think he had been there years.

“I’m judging him as a defender. He is the best right back in the Premier League.

“There’s always a question about him going forward, he can learn that, he will get better and better. He’s playing for a team who will allow him to do that.

“If you’re playing next to him as a centre-half, you’re saying to yourself ‘there’s my get out of jail card’ because he wants to make those tackles and wants to protect that right hand side.

“He doesn’t want to give anyone a yard or see anybody deliver crosses from his side of the park. I thrive on that. I love that.”

I differ from you. Maybe after this season we can tell. But you know that VVD takes quite OK freekicks right?
