'We've got to keep improving' - Maguire says Man Utd must go to next level after clinching Champions League place
That had seemed a highly unlikely prospect at the start of the year, but the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP in January transformed United's season.
Maguire pointed to that as a big factor in United's improvement, as he celebrated victory at the King Power Stadium.
"As a club we expect to be in the ChampionsLeague but the last few years have been tough," Maguire told Sky Sports. "At the start of the season, the majority of people probably didn't expect us to be in the top four at the end of the season. We always had great faith in ourselves.
"Next season we've got to keep improving."
Maguiresaid United had been "far too inconsistent, dropping silly points" early in the campaign.
"Performances weren't good enough in parts of the games and we were getting punished," said the England defender. "We've been a lot better of late and to come from the position we were in shows the great character that we've got in this group."
Maguire was asked what had changed about United, allowing them to surge up the table.
"It's hard to say. Obviously bringing Bruno in in January has made a big difference. He put us 1-0 up today," Maguire said."Big players turn up in big moments. It was a nervy, edgy game but we deserved the three points."
Fernandes slotted a penalty home in the 71st minute, with Jesse Lingard sealing the points in stoppage time.
Leicester sat third when the Premier League resumed after its three-month suspension, triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.
They fell away badly and finished fifth, and Maguire had sympathy for his old club, now led by Brendan Rodgers.
