“Should be captain” – These Man United fans name the player to take the armband off Harry Maguire

Loads of Manchester United fans are calling for Bruno Fernandes to be the new club captain instead of the struggling Harry Maguire.

Maguire does not seem to be Mr Popular with Red Devils supporters at the moment after some unconvincing form ever since his big move from Leicester City last season.

The England international shone at Leicester but has gone badly downhill at Old Trafford, and he now looks a slightly baffling choice to be named captain by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

By contrast, Fernandes has been a revelation since his move from Sporting Lisbon less than a year ago, with the Portugal international instantly looking a confident personality and someone who can lead by example.

    Maguire is a 24 carat plonker, a bad defender, a very bad captain and cannot even marshall a defence of which he is the weakest link. Buy 2 CBs in January and make Bruno Captain.

  3. Surajo usman doka says:

    Maguire is not deserve to be skipper. Fernandes is better than mague.

    Bruno Fernandes,hard Working Man,where Were You,you Are Indeed A True Leader.We Need Bruno To Be Our Captain Not Harry

  5. Roland says:

    3 Problems:
    1) Captain Harry don’t command and set his examples as a leader.
    2) David like Antony inconsistent and whenever he plays, he leaks goals. Not one but 2 to 3 goals very often. Long overdue for Dean to step in whenever David fails, Dean should take over to provide competition.
    3) Our right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a weakling and often left exposed when counter attack from opponents
