Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has made it plain that defender Harry Maguire must fight for his position after losing his position as club captain.
Since former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave him the reins in January 2020, Maguire has served as Man United’s captain.
Bruno Fernandes recently received the captain’s armband from Ten Hag, who had previously given it to the England center-back.
The former Leicester City star’s loss of the club captaincy has renewed rumors that he may depart Old Trafford, but Ten Hag has now reiterated that he will stay as a crucial player of the team.
“We honor Harry. For this group, for this team, he’s crucial, Ten Hag added, as reported by Metro UK.
I mentioned consistency, and since we know we can’t do it with eleven players, I’m glad we have four excellent center backs.
“And we will require them, and he must contend for his position, as he did the previous year. Because of his enormous potential, I am confident that he will succeed. He will struggle for his position, and then it will be up to him.
