According to the British “Daily Star”, in the selection of the captain of the new season, Manchester United new coach Ten Hag may deprive Maguire of the captain’s armband and finally hand it over to Ronaldo.
Maguire has been United’s on-field captain since Ashley Young left the team. However, Maguire’s captaincy has also been questioned due to his poor performance this past season. “Daily Star” pointed out that Ten Hag’s arrival will change a lot of things for Manchester United, and the change of captaincy may be one of them.
It is reported that Manchester United’s players who do not have a national team role will start preparing for the new season on Monday, but Maguire has been allowed to continue his honeymoon by the team because of his new marriage. The new coach Ten Hag will have an interview with Ronaldo, and the final result may be to hand the captain’s armband to the Portuguese star.
For now, the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo continuing to perform the final year of his contract with Manchester United is not small, although the team has only ranked sixth in the Premier League this past season, 13 points away from the Champions League. The “Daily Star” pointed out that Ten Hag will talk to Ronaldo to figure out the latter’s plan, dispel the Portuguese’s doubts about Manchester United’s current signings being blocked, and even do not rule out handing over the captain’s armband to him.
