Harry Maguire as captain, good or bad?
David de Gea was reportedly set to become the next captain of Manchester United and has all the support of the dressing room. However, new boss Erik ten Hag is under pressure to make the judgement. In the Englishman’s reign, United finished at sixth position and failed to get their hands on the silverware.
Moreover, Harry Maguire’s own performance was much criticized. The 29 year old was made captain in January 2020 after his arrival from Leicester and departure of Ashley Young to Inter Milan. Maguire has also missed out on eight games due to injury and inconsistent form.
Now, Erik ten Hag is happy to give the armband to the Spanish goalkeeper because of the respect and belief he has earned from his teammates over the years. De Gea has been at Old Trafford for eleven years now and now he is set tpo make his 500th appearance for the Red Devils next season and has earned four major titles, including the Premier League in 2012-13.
Memes are also being surfaced on social media to mock Maguire’s leadership.
