Former Manchester United defender, Johnny Evans, has revealed he told Harry Maguire to join the club, after he joined them at Leicester City.

The Leicester City man made this known while speaking to MUTV recently about some of the events that led up to Maguire making the switch to Old Trafford.

Part of the things he said also included how he predicted Maguire’s captaincy at United in less than a year.

He told MUTV: “When Harry signed for the club he had a decision where to go. I told him to go to United because it was the perfectly-made club for him.

“I said that within a year at the club that he’d be captain and when he got given the captaincy I text him and said: ‘That was quicker than what I expected!’.

“I think he’s got the perfect personality for it. If you look at Harry, he never gets injured, he’s played all season and I think he’s been a really good signing for United.”

Indeed, Maguire has in all, been solid for most of the season, despite his recent dip in form.

It was also recently revealed that the United captain has played through injury for months now, just because he wants to help his teammates finish the season strongly. Now, that’s some leadership quality for you!

Maguire will face his old teammates when we take on Leicester City this Sunday, and will hope to get a win, so as to ensure a place in next season’s Champions League.
