Manchester United star Paul Pogba has revealed he has nicknamed Harry Maguire “The Beast”.

Maguire was a rock at the heart of United’s defence in a 4-0 victory over Chelsea.

He was named man of the match after a rock-solid display after becoming the world’s most expensive defender.

“As I call him [Maguire] – ‘the Beast’,” said Pogba. “Honestly, as you saw, he was really impressive. He is a leader. He fits 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.”
