Maguire is currently following in Vidic's footsteps as both the captain and leading centre-back at United, while he has also recovered from injury to star for England at this summer's European Championships.
"He's a defender who is still improving, but if he wants to be recognised at the highest level he has to win trophies.
'When I look at Maguire I see a defender who is good at everything, 8/10 at everything.
"He's not as good on the ball or as fast as Rio Ferdinand was for example, and he doesn't tackle or head like I did, but he has quality across his game.
"He's fast enough, he's strong enough, he can jump and play the ball, his positioning is fine."
