'Manchester United Captain Harry Maguire Doesn’t Inspire Like Roy Keane Or Bryan Robson'
Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire does not have the same inspirational leadership aura as Red Devils legends Roy Keane and Bryan Robson.
That's according to former United man Andrei Kanchelskis, who has raised doubts over how quiet he is and his lack of aggression.
The English centre-back impressed during his arrival at Old Trafford by forming an effective partnership with Victor Lindelof before taking the captain's armband from Ashley Young, who moved to Inter Milan in January.
When he was asked if Maguire is the right captain to lead United for the long-term future, Kanchelskis told American Gambler: "I don't know.

United are currently ninth and are five points behind Premier League leaders Tottenham, though the Red Devils have a match in hand.
And the Red Devils could still make the next round of the Champions League, despite suffering a 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday at Old Trafford.
When he was asked if United could compete for the title this season, Kanchelskis responded: "Yes! Why not?

"I've seen the results and anything can happen. Liverpool lost 7-2 and United lost 6-1. With everything happening, it's a good chance to win the title."
