Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has said Harry Maguire will continue as the team’s captain next season.
Maguire was handed the armband by former manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, shortly after his 2019 transfer from Leicester City.
He will now continue in the role going forward, according to Ten Hag.
Ten Hag said this while speaking at his first press conference of Tour 2022 to preview Tuesday’s friendly match against Liverpool at Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium.
Asked which player will captain Man United next season, Ten Hag said, “Harry Maguire is the captain.”
The Dutchman was then asked to explain why Maguire is right for the role, he added, “Of course, I have to get to know all the players and it takes time.
“But he has been an established captain for a few years and he has achieved a lot of success, so I don’t doubt about this issue.”
