Maguire stripped of the Manchester United captaincy

 Reds defender Maguire, after speaking with team manager Eren Ten Hag, said it was agreed  he would not captain Manchester United  in the new season.   Maguire wore the United leaders' armband six months after joining United in 2019 at the decision of former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but only played in  16 league games last season, while Bruno Fernandes wore the armband in the absence of the England defender 

. .   Maguire tweeted: "After speaking to the manager today he informed me that he is changing his team captain. He explained his reasons  and although I am very disappointed I will continue to look my best every time I put on the knitted sweater.”   The 30-year-old England  defender added: "Three and a half years ago I had the privilege of managing Manchester United and it is one of the proudest moments of my career to date."  Maguire was heavily criticized for making a series of serious mistakes last season, losing a place in the starting line-up and starting in eight league games and  was reportedly on the verge of retirement.   Manchester United have not announced a new captain as media reports have suggested that 28-year-old Fernandez will take over the captaincy.   Fernandez, who joined United from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, won the United Player of the Year award for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.
