- Harry Maguire wanted his performance at Manchester United to be judged after five years
- The England centre-back joined Man United from Leicester for £80m - in a world-record fee for a defender in the summer
- Maguire has played in every Premier League match for United so far this campaign
Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire believes he will be a success story at Old Trafford and wants to be judged after five or six years.
The Red Devils have been struggling in recent time and have witnessed their worst start to a Premier League campaign in 30 years - going down 1-0 to Newcastle last Sunday to extend their poor run away from Old Trafford to 11 games across all competitions.
At the last count, Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have won only four Premier League games since he was confirmed as permanent manager in March, but Maguire remains upbeat things will change positively at the club.
"It's the long term, that's what the main thing is," Maguire ws quoted as saying to the club's official magazine Inside United.
"In five or six years, judge me then - whether I have been a success at this club or not.
"I do believe and am really confident that, in five or six years, I'll be a success and I am sure we'll have many, many good times here.
"We need to keep improving as a team, not just me as an individual. I feel, if we improve as a team, I'll be a success too,” noted Maguire.
The Three Lions defence ace joined the Old Trafford dwellers in a world-record fee of £80m for a defender from Leicester in the summer - and has played all United’s Premier League games so far.
But the England centre-back is not worried with the huge fee coughed out by Man United for his services amid high expectations.
"It doesn't bother me at all," he said. "It's something that I can't affect. Leicester wanted to keep me and they are in a great position as a club
"Manchester United wanted to buy me and they came to an agreement. It's probably a good deal for both parties and it's something now where I want to concentrate on my football,” Maguire submitted.
