Ole praises United new signing

English Premier League

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for one of his off-season signings following the win over Leicester City.

United captured Harry Maguire from Leicester in the summer and the defender lined-up against his former side for the first time.

Marcus Rashford's penalty was the difference as the Red Devils moved up to fourth spot in the Premier League standings.

“Maguire was outstanding today. Jamie Vardy was kept pretty quiet, and it’s not often you can say that. Along with Lindelof, both played really well. The fullbacks did a decent job as well," Solskjaer told MUTV.

“I thought they did excellent, read the game well. I’ve got loads of admiration for Vardy, he’s my type of centre-forward, running in-behind and harassing and you’ve got to be spot on with your decision-making.

“I think both of them proved their worth. There were a couple of races and Harry di well."
