Harry Maguire Named New Manchester United Captain

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named former Leicester City defender Harry Maguire as new club captain following the imminent departure of Ashley Young to Inter Milan. He said:

Harry has been wearing the captain’s armband and he will keep wearing it. He’s come in and been a leader in the group. I’ve been impressed by his leadership skills.

Everything about him tells me he’s a leader. He’s part of a group that we’ve had that have been leading this young group.

Solskjaer revealed that Young was offered a two-year contract by Inter and United was not able to match it because the winger-cum-fullback turns 35 in this coming summer.

Young had been captain since replacing Antonio Valencia in the summer.
