HARRY MAGUIRE has rubbished Roy Keane’s taunt that Manchester United lack leaders.
Former United captain Keane said that was one of their biggest problems, after watching his former team slump to a dismal 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal.
That was their third Premier League defeat at Old Trafford this season.
But as United travelled to take on Istanbul Basaksehir, looking to complete a hat-trick of Champions League victories, current captain Maguire hit out at his predecessor.
He said: “I can say for sure there’s a lot of leaders in this squad.

“I’m the captain, I have a lot of leadership around me with staff and players. So no, there’s a lot of leaders in the squad.
“I haven’t even seen his comments. We don’t look what’s happening, especially after a negative result.
“We don’t bring the negativity into the place. We stay positive.”
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also dismissed his former team-mate’s comments .
And he backed his players to bounce back from their awful display against Arsenal by virtually guaranteeing a place in the Champions League knockout stage.
Solskjaer said: “Roy has always been outspoken and I'm very glad I have the players we've got here.
“We've got different jobs and Roy’s job is to give his opinion and I always listen to Roy.
“But we always move on here with a great group of players, a strong group of players, and I'm sure we'll see a response.”
