Harry Maguire named the captain of Manchester United, a few months after joining the club from his big money move from Leicester City.

 

The England centre-half succeeds left-back Ashley Young, who is close to completing a move to Inter Milan. Others who have captained United before now, are Marcus Rashford, David de Gea and Jesse Lingard have also captained the club this season in the absence of Young.

Maguire, 26, has made 29 appearances for the Red Devils since his £80m move from the King Power Stadium in August.

“Everything about him tells me is a leader,” said United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“Harry will keep wearing the armband now.”

Harry Maguire named captain even though he is not the oldest in the team, and given the more experienced players like David De Gea, Mata, Matic and Paul Pogba in the team, one would have expected Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to have picked his captain from the more experienced players who have been in the club way before Harry. The manager clearly is picking his captain without the input from his players, which could possibly derail team spirit in the long run.

Hopefully, they all welcome and work with him for the sake of the team, as the potential exit of Young could pose a big challenge to Harry in terms of his relationship with others, and how to communicate the philosophy of the club to his teammates.

His first big test as the captain of Manchester United, will be at the weekend when the Red Devil will take on league leaders, and Premier League rival, Liverpool. The game will see two of world most expensive defenders clashing and proving their huge transfer fees!
