Ahead of today's visit to Liverpool, Maguire says his focus is always on defending.
"I've learned so much as captain of this club," says Maguire, whose career was built in the lower leagues at Sheffield United before an upgrade to Leicester and the 2018 World Cup.
"It's a massive honour but I am here to win games and trophies. That's my character.
"I played in League One, learning about heading, blocking, tackling and the rest in a really tough environment. It teaches you to be tough. The main thing isn't about stepping out from the back and knocking long diagonal balls to people — it's about keeping the ball out of your own net."
