Manchester United Defender, Harry Maguire has announced that he’s no longer the captain of the club after holding talks with Manager Erik Ten Haag.
The England International has been the club captain since He was appointed by Ex-manager Ole Gunner Solksjaer in 2019.
“After discussions with the manager today he has informed me he is changing captain. He outlined his reasons to me and whilst I’m personally extremely disappointed, I will continue to give my all every time I wear the shirt”. Maguire wrote in a statement.
“So I wanted to say a massive thank you to the Manchester United fans for all their brilliant support whilst I’ve been wearing the armband.
Since the day I took on the role, three and half years ago, it’s been a huge privilege to lead Manchester United and one of the proudest moments of my career to date. It’s one of the greatest honours in club football. I’ve done everything I possibly could to help United be successful – on and off the field”.
“I will always be grateful to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for first giving me the responsibility and I wish whoever now takes it on every success and they will have my full support”. He concluded.
A new captain is expected to be announced by Ten Haag before the new season commences, with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Raphael Varane, and Casemiro leading the race to be the club’s next leader.
