Van der Vaart slams Maguire, Lindelof: Not good enough for Man Utd

Former Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has slatted Manchester United's defence.

Speaking with Championat, Van der Vaart reaffirmed his early season criticism of Harry Maguire's big money move from Leicester City.

"I say what I see," said Van der Vaart.

"Maguire cost ninety million euros. I think that is a lot of money, I assume you are also given that opinion. Maguire is not so good."

The Dutchman also is unconvinced by Victor Lindelof.

"I don't think they belong to the best defenders, even though they play at one of the biggest clubs in the world."
