Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has advised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make Harry Maguire a captain of his Manchester United side.
The Red Devil’s current captain Ashley Young is close to leaving the club, while Paul Pogba, who also has been considered as an option for captain role, is also uncertain over his future.
Carragher wrote in his column for The Telegraph
: "He [Ole] should take a firm decision by immediately appointing Harry Maguire captain. He can be empowered to take such big decisions by his popularity. Such is the admiration for Solskjaer, when [executive vice-chairman Ed] Woodward announced this week he will be given time there was no outpouring of discontent from United’s fans as they believe the bigger problems lie elsewhere within the club."
In the last game against Rochdale in the Carabao Cup, Axel Tuenzebe has captained the Red Devils, considering the fact that the player moved to Rochdale with his family at the age of four and grew up in the town. Moreover, he has captained United at every age level.
Solskjaer himself, has already announced he has intentions to make Harry Maguire the club’s future captain: “Maguire a leader? He does, he’s already been in my head as a future captain. On the pitch, he’s a leader. Off the pitch he’s a top professional, he’s vocal. I’m very pleased with the money we spent on him. He’s one looking like we can give the band too, yes.”
