Manchester United have decided to take the captaincy away from the English centre-back Harry Maguire on Sunday.
The 30-year-old took to Twitter to thank the fans for their support during his captaincy and ensure that he will continue to give his all for the club.
Maguire tweeted, “After discussions with the manager today he has informed me he is changing captain. He outlined his reasons to me and whilst I’m personally extremely disappointed, I will continue to give my all every time I wear the shirt. So, I wanted to say a massive thank you to the Manchester United fans for all their brilliant support whilst I’ve been wearing the armband.”
He added, “Since the day I took on the role, three-and-a-half years ago, it’s been a huge privilege to lead Manchester United and one of the proudest moments of my career to date. It’s one of the greatest honours in club football. I’ve done everything I possibly could to help United be successful – on and off the field.”
He went on to say that it was a privilege to lead the club, and this has been one of the proudest moments of his career.
Maguire stated, “I will always be grateful to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for first giving me the responsibility and I wish whoever now takes it on every success and they will have my full support.”
With the lack of game time Magurie had under Erik Ten Hag and Bruno Fernandes leading the team on the pitch, it was a clear indication of Maguire’s future as a captain.
According to Sky Sports, “West Ham are thought to be exploring the option of either a loan or a permanent deal for the 30-year-old defender. However, the Hammers are aware wages could prove to be a problem if a deal was to be agreed between the clubs.”
