Harry Maguire ‘seems quite cheap’ for £80million says former Manchester United defender Wes Brown as he hails England man for bringing ‘calmness’ to defence
- Harry Maguire joined Manchester United from Leicester last summer for £80m
- He has been an ever-present at the back for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side since
- Former United defender Wes Brown has praised the effect the defender has had
Harry Maguire has proved a steal for Manchester United at £80million, according to one former defender.
Wes Brown spent 15 years at Old Trafford as a professional and was lauded by boss Sir Alex Ferguson as England’s most natural defender during his time there.
Having lifted five Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies during his time at United, he is no stranger to what is needed at the back to create success.

And in Maguire, he sees a player with the attributes needed to help drive United on.
‘I actually think it seems quite cheap nowadays,’ Brown told Sky Sports.
‘I think he’s brought a calmness to the whole defence. He’s still relatively young, but he’s very experienced already. He has an awareness about him and he’s very good on his positioning.

‘There are games where you don’t really notice him, but that’s just because he’s doing his job. He’s winning his headers, he’s laying it off. We’re more solid with him at the back.
‘He gives you a kind of, “we can do this” attitude and that’s especially true when he has been playing with Victor Lindelof. They have complimented each other well.
‘Sometimes it can take time to figure out which players work with which players, but those two have formed a good partnership.’
Brown has also praised the England central defender for instilling calmness at the back
