EPL: Maguire breaks silence on Ronaldo taking over Man Utd captaincy

Harry Maguire

Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has insisted there is no power struggle with Cristiano Ronaldo over the armband.

It has been reported Maguire feels undermined by Ronaldo’s influence, with his continued role as captain questioned.

United forward, Marcus Rashford, this week came out to dismiss talk of a dressing room divide involving Ronaldo earlier this week and Maguire has rejected the latest reports.

“I’ve seen a lot of reports about this club that aren’t true and this is another,” he posted on Twitter on Friday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match at Leeds.

“Not going to start posting about everything that is written but I needed to make this one clear. We’re united and focused on Sunday. Enjoy your day everyone.”

United’s 2-0 win against Brighton on Tuesday lifted them back into fourth place in the English top-flight — the top four teams all qualify for next season’s Champions League.
