“In the past two games, yeah he had some weaker moments, against Southampton and when we conceded the goal at Burnley, but he’s our captain and I don’t see any reason to change that.”

Maguire joined Manchester United from Leicester City following is 80 million pounds deal between the two club.

United former boss made Ole Gunner Solskjaer made Maguire the club captain just five months after joining and has since the made 132 appearances for the club.

“The way that we are playing now is new also to him because in the English national team he was used to playing in a back three and here at Manchester United, in most cases a back four, but still not being as proactive, not with that kind of rest defence always being on the front foot when we are trying to defend.

“This is something also new to him and it will also take some time for him to get used to that, to get adjusted to that.”
