Paul Pogba has heaped praise on new Manchester United team-mate Harry Maguire following his formidable debut against Chelsea.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ran out emphatic 4-0 winners against their top-four rivals on Sunday at Old Trafford, with Maguire a calm presence in defence on his first outing since his £80million move.
And Pogba, who shone in the second half, lauded the England international, telling French reporters: ‘I call him “The Beast’.
‘Honestly, as you saw, C. He fit right in with us in training.
‘We talked about controlling the defence well and he has a good understanding with Victor [Lindelof]. It was a very good match to start with from the whole team.’
Marcus Rashford bagged a double, while Anthony Martial and Daniel James on debut grabbed a goal each as they put Frank Lampard’s side to the sword.
