Neville unsure whether Maguire will have the Van Dijk effect at Old Trafford
- Maguire is settling in well at Old Trafford.
- The 26-year-old helped United to keep a clean sheet against Chelsea.
- But Neville believes it's too early to say the centre-back will be as good as Liverpool's Van Dijk.
And many fans and pundits are expecting to see similar impact from Harry Maguire at Old Trafford now that the 26-year-old has replaced the Dutchman as the world's most expensive defender.
However, Gary Neville insists now is not the time to make such comparisons: "He has a really good temperament. The hope is that he doesn't just do his job, but he is a catalyst for strengthening the whole team.
"The great centre-backs I played with didn't just help themselves during the game, they also had a big impact on others. We have spoken about Virgil van Dijk doing that at Liverpool. It's too early to say Maguire will make the same difference as Van Dijk, but there's a chance.
"Manchester City wanted Maguire and Manchester United won him and they so needed him. A character, a personality, a leader, a dominant force, he will bring stability to the club for the next five or six years."
