​Hull manager Marco Silva says defender Maguire can be great

Hull manager Marco Silva believes that young English defender Harry Maguire can be great in the future.

Silva's comments come after Maguire produced an outstanding performance that in his sides 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday. With Hull teetering above the drop zone, Maguire's solid outing helped earn his side a valuable point against the Saints.

'That performance is no surprise to me, because he's played like that and been improving for a while now,' said Silva to The Daily Mail.

'He's a very good player, he works hard and is understanding better what I want for the team and he's understanding better our organisation as well.

"He has very good skills and it's clear to me he will have a big career in the future."

Maguire will need to put on another stellar performance when Hull face the already relegated Sunderland on Saturday.
