Man Utd fullback Shaw: Differences between Maguire and Young

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw has opened up on the differences between current captain Harry Maguire and previous skipper Ashley Young.

Maguire was awarded the captaincy by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in January after Young left Old Trafford to join Inter Milan.

"He's (Solskjaer) signed people who aren't just good players, but also really good lads as well," Shaw told Manchester United's website.

"They've integrated in the squad really well and brought a bit more energy and togetherness in the group.

"That's particularly true of Harry. He's really trying to make sure we get more things done together as a group going forward.

"Youngy was brilliant, really tried his hardest, but sometimes it was difficult to get things done as a group.

"Now we've made a pact that whenever a team bonding thing happens, we all have to do it or we get fined. It's great for the team to be together and do things together."
