With the departure of Ashley Young to Inter Milan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to name Harry Maguire as the new captain of Manchester United.
Young joined United back in 2011, spending 9 years at Old Trafford, winning: 1 Premier League title, 1 FA Cup, 1 League Cup, 3 Community Shields and 1 Europa League during his time at Old Trafford. As a result of being one of the most senior players at Old Trafford, Young was named as Manchester United captain during August of last year.
Despite only arriving at Old Trafford during the summer of 2019, Harry Maguire has already captained Manchester United on a few occasions, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying in a recent press conference, “Everything about him tells me he is a leader. Harry Will keep wearing the armband now.”
Maguire looks set to make his first appearance as Manchester United captain at the weekend, as United travel to Merseyside to face fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield.
