Harry Maguire Steps Down as Manchester United Captain
MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – In a recent development, Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, has decided to relieve Harry Maguire of his captaincy role. This decision follows discussions between the two parties.
Last season, Maguire had limited appearances under the Dutch manager’s guidance, which prompted speculation about his future at Old Trafford. In a heartfelt message on Twitter, Maguire expressed his disappointment at being stripped of the captaincy but pledged to continue giving his best for the team.
During his absence last season, Bruno Fernandes frequently donned the captain’s armband, making him a strong contender for the permanent role. The official announcement about the new captain is yet to be made by the manager.
Maguire, who joined Manchester United from Leicester in 2019 for a staggering 80 million pounds (now $105 million), has been a prominent figure with over 170 appearances for the club. Reports have linked him to a possible move to West Ham in recent days.
As the football world eagerly awaits the clash between Manchester United and Lyon, all eyes are on Murrayfield Stadium for what promises to be an exhilarating encounter.
