England international talks about his coaches in national team and club.

Manchester United’s


Harry Maguire

seems to be more interested in

Gareth Southgate’s

style of management than the one of

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s


The high-profile defender who had a big role in Solskjaer’s squad helping the Red Devils to sit second on the Premier League table will be helping his national team under Gareth Southgate.

“Gareth has been brilliant with me,”

Maguire told

Gary Neville's 'The Overlap' YouTube show


“Every game I've been available for, I've started. So for him to show that belief, confidence and trust, it's massive.

"He can be hard. He's a bit like Ole in terms of that, he knows when to be hard or not be hard. He has Steve Holland too, who can be hard in the changing room at half-time or before games.

“But Gareth makes the belief and the confidence in the group, and the tactical side of it is second to none as well."

Harry Maguire thinks that this England squad that will head into the delayed Euro 2020 is more experienced than the one that was eliminated by Croatia in the World Cup semi-final three years ago and insists that the players are in better form now.

"I feel like the squad is more experienced, we have more leadership in the squad,"

Maguire said


"A lot of players play in big games regularly, Liverpool have won the Champions League and the Man City lads have done really well this season.

"There's experience of playing in these big games, but international games are decided on big moments.

"It's an exciting time to be an England fan, but we've still got a lot of improvement to make."
