Brendan Rodgers has hailed the character of Harry Maguire and praised the way he handled his exit from Leicester this summer. 

The England international sealed a record £80million move to Manchester United after a summer-long pursuit from the Old Trafford club. 

Maguire continued to appear for Leicester in pre-season and showed little signs of agitation to force the move through, drawing praise from Rodgers as to how he handled it all.   

'I text Harry still now, wish him the best when he was playing with England,' Rodgers said on Thursday. 

'He was a remarkable guy and a fantastic player and for me, his behaviour in the period that he was here, really typified him as a man.

'Even though it was so difficult for him right the way through the summer, from the end of the season right the way through... I'll always have a big respect for him for that.

'He's a good guy and he's gone in there and you can see he's made them better.'

Leicester head to Old Trafford on Saturday unbeaten in the Premier League with two wins and two draws to start the season. They are sat third behind Liverpool and Manchester City. 

And Saturday's meeting, not only viewed as a reunion for Maguire, is seen as a crucial game in the battle for the top six. 

The Foxes are considered the most likely candidates to upset the top order this season after smart recruitment and marked improvement since Rodgers took charge.
