Rodgers praises ‘exemplary’ Maguire ahead of Manchester United clash

Brendan Rodgers has praised Harry Maguire for his ‘exemplary’ conduct over the summer.

Leicester manager Rodgers is preparing to take his in-form Foxes side to Manchester this weekend, where they will face a familiar opponent in the form of England international, Maguire.

The 26-year-old became the world’s most expensive defender when leaving the King Power Stadium for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in August, and has impressed in the early stages of his Manchester United career.

In typical Rodgers fashion, the Northern Irishman has praised Maguire ahead of this weekend’s clash, reeling off a whole host of his favourite adjectives to describe his former player.

“I text him now and then and wish him the best when he plays with England,” Rodgers said at his Thursday press conference.

“He’s a remarkable guy and a fantastic player. His behaviour typified him as a man.

“It was so difficult for him and right the way through, his behaviour was exemplary. He’s a good guy and you can see he’s made [Manchester United] better.”
