Rio Ferdinand: "Harry Maguire doesn't deserve the captain's armband"

According to the legendary Rio Ferdinand, Harry Maguire became the captain of Manchester United too soon. The club from Old Trafford paid 80 million pounds for the arrival of Maguire from Leicester in August 2019. In less than six months, he became captain.

Since then, Maguire has not shown anything particularly good, he has been criticized many times, and most believe that he is the weakest link in the Old Trafford team. Fans are demanding that someone else take over the captain's armband, but it looks like Maguire will be the leader for a long time to come Due to the armband, the English defender was additionally the target of public criticism.

"I think he became captain too soon. It's hard enough to come to Manchester United and feel comfortable and without the extra pressure of being a captain," Rio said. "It's a huge responsibility, it puts a big burden on your shoulders.

You have to spend some time in the team to be able to deal with it. It was more important that Maguire concentrates on becoming a team supporter, not a captain." . Ferdinand has a clear idea of ​​who should have carried the captain's armband.

"David de Gea would be my choice because of the time he spent at the club and because he knows what it takes to win." What do you say, is Maguire a good captain?


In addition to Maguire Ronaldo is often criticized for not being the same player anymore, and for not giving his best.

Still, his stats aren’t that bad, although we’re used to the Portuguese having a much better performance Cristiano Ronaldo, the first star of Manchester United, pointed out that he is not the happiest with the current form of his team.

The Devils are currently in sixth place in the Premier League. They have 31 points from 18 games, even 19 less than the currently leading city rival City. In the Champions League, they moved from first place in the group to the eighth-finals, and that is the brightest success of this half-season.

"I am not happy with what we have done so far. None of us is satisfied. I am convinced of that. We have to work harder and provide parties much better than the ones we are showing now," said the Portuguese. United will play their first match of the New Year on Monday, January 3. Their rival at Old Trafford will be the Wolves.
