Man United superstar Paul Pogba has revealed he calls the club’s summer signing Harry Maguire ‘the Beast’ as he praised the defender after the team’s opening day Premier League victory over Chelsea on Sunday Evening.
Pogba is clearly a fan of Maguire, who looked solid and assured on his competitive debut for the Red Devils, who thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford.

As well as just praising the England international, however, Pogba also noted that United now look to have a promising central defensive pairing as the combination with Victor Lindelof looks a strong one.
“As I call him [Maguire] – ‘the Beast’,” “Honestly, as you saw, he was really impressive. He is a leader. He fits right in with us in training.
“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.” Pogba is quoted by the Daily Mirror.
