Paul Pogba has showered new Manchester United signing Harry Maguire with praise following his impressive displays on his debut against Chelsea.
United demolished Chelsea 4-0 on Sunday, August 11, at Old Trafford, with Maguire parading a calm presence in defence on his first match.
The England international was partnered alongside Victor Lindelof in central defence, with Luke Shaw and new signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka providing cover on either flanks in the back-line.
Pogba, who also shone with a brace of assists has lauded the former Leicester centre-back, revealing he has nick-named him The Beast.
"Honestly, as you saw, he was really impressive. He is a leader. He fit right in with us in training," Pogba told reporters.
"We talked about controlling the defence well and he has a good understanding with Victor [Lindelof]. It was a very good match to start with from the whole team," he submitted.
Marcus Rashford netted a double, with Anthony Martial and debutant Daniel James grabbing a goal each to put Frank Lampard's side to the sword.
