Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been impressed with the impact Harry Maguire has made at Manchester United.

Solskjaer has no doubt that the defender will one day become a club captain.

Former Leicester City star Maguire arrived at Old Trafford in a stunning 80million move.

“I think he’s been brilliant, I think he’s come into the dressing room and been a leader” said Solskjaer.

“He’s also a leader on the pitch and I’m sure he’s looking forward to playing against his old team. Now he’s here he’s going to be a big part of the future of this club. We’ve watched him enough to know he’s the guy we wanted, that’s why we spent the money we did on him. Leicester didn’t want to lose him.

“He’s definitely a character and personality that can be captain of a big club. In the dressing room he’s a leader both by performances, stature and behaviour. He’s a character you’d like to follow; some are technical leaders, some are leaders by voice, but he’s got the lot.”
