Man Utd captain Maguire: This squad best I've played in

Skipper Harry Maguire is full of pride over his playing record at Manchester United.

The in-form defender is ready to make his 83rd appearance for the Reds in Wednesday's Premier League clash at Fulham.

"Yeah, it means everything," Maguire told United magazine. “It's why I joined this club. It's something that, in the future, I want to look back at and see I've played numerous times for this club.

“Seventy or 80-odd games in such a short period is a great start for me. But it's only a start, I feel like I'm going to have a lot of years at this club. And that's the aim – I want to keep playing, I want to keep impressing, I want to keep improving. And it's also very important to keep improving as a team, I think that's the main thing."

Maguire also stated: "For sure, it's a talented young group, and it's definitely the most talented squad I've been involved in.

“We've played a little bit young and a little bit immature at times in games, and I feel that, this season, it's nice to win a couple of games without playing at our best.

“I think last season, every game that we won we had to score and run riot, really, we had to play at a top, top level. But it's nice to know that when things aren't going great, we can still win football matches. And I think that's a big part of experience."
