Maguire Praises Man Utd Improvement

By | January 19, 2021

LONDON: Manchester United captain Harry Maguire praised the Red Devils’ 18-month performance at the club but said more improvements were needed to secure a major trophy.

United extended their unbeaten run in the league to 12 games and a record away from 16 games after a 0-0 draw at Liverpool yesterday to stay on the Premier League stage.

The 33-point gap separated the club last season as Liverpool won their first title in the league after 30 years.

However, the position is closer for the title this season with just five points separating the top six teams.

“You can see how much we’ve improved since I was here,” said Maguire, who joined the club with a world record for defenders from Leicester in August 2019.

“As a team, we are on the rise but need more improvement, and it is better to be where we want to be.

“We want to win the match but we have to keep pace without losing, especially at the opponent’s place.”

United’s last defeat in the home away from home was at Anfield a year ago when they lost 2-0.
