On January 17, 2020, Harry Maguire was appointed as the new captain of MU to replace Ashley Young, after the player joined Inter Milan. However, up until now the decision to hand over the captain’s armband to Maguire did not seem to have had the desired effect.
Maguire risks being stripped of the captain’s armband
The Manchester Evening News said that there was a wave of manucians, asking coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be ruthless with Harry Maguire. Accordingly, this £ 80 million contract is not suitable as the leader for the Old Trafford team. Instead, MU fans believe that it is Bruno Fernandes who deserves to be the leader of the “Red Devils”.

In this match, Whoscored scored only 5.4 for Maguire, lower than the fired player Anthony Martial.
Weak in terms of expertise, Maguire also did not show the ability to revive the team mentally. In fact, due to the lack of professional requirements, since defense is always the biggest weakness, Maguire’s voice to his teammates was not loud enough.
Bruno Fernandes is the answer?
According to the Manchester Evening News, at the moment MU players are playing with great inspiration from Bruno Fernandes. All have to look at this Portuguese player to play, not Maguire. Bruno was not only professionally responsive, his ability to prompt and lift his spirits with his teammates was also recognized.
