Some Manchester United the stars resented Ole Gunar Solskjaerdecision on appointment Harry Maguire as club captain, according to the Manchester Evening News. Several in the locker room of the Red Devils thought that the Englishman had been handed the ribbon too soon.
Manchester United has announced that it has fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as its manager. The decision to fire the Norwegian comes after the 4-1 defeat of the Red Devils by Watford.
Solskjaer has recently come under tremendous pressure, especially after Manchester United’s defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City. In the end, the Red Devils had no choice but to fire him.
Manchester United fans hope that the dismissal of Solskjaer will mark the beginning of a new era for the club. However, the Norwegian’s departure brought to light some questions behind the scenes.
According to reports, some Manchester United players resented Solskjaer ‘s decision to appoint Maguire as club captain. Several in the locker room of the Red Devils believe that the Englishman was handed the ribbon too soon.
Maguire moved to Manchester United from Leicester City for around £ 80 million in the summer of 2019. In January 2020, Solskjaer appointed the England international as the new Red Devils captain.
The decision to give Maguire a ribbon on his arm was criticized by many fans at the time. If the reports are to be believed, not all Manchester United players were also happy with the decision.
It also turned out that one Manchester United star wondered why he was quickly dismissed, while Maguire and Fred were often held back despite not playing well. The father of one player allegedly admitted that his son was ‘c ** p’ for weeks.
Jesse Lingard had a good relationship with Solskjaer, but was confused by the lack of time to play. Axel Tuanzebe, who is currently on loan at Aston Villa, believes he lacks the support of the coaching staff after the bad games against Istanbul Basaksehir and Sheffield United in the last term.
Diogo Dalot kept wondering why Aaron Wan-Bissaka kept starting, while Brandom Williams was unhappy that he wasn’t allowed to go on loan in January. Manchester United’s recent form is worrying, but fans will be even more worried about these problems behind the scenes.
Can Harry Maguire lose the role of Manchester United captain?
It remains to be seen who Manchester United will appoint as a direct replacement for Solskjaer. No matter who comes, they have a lot of work to do to turn things around at Old Trafford, and solving problems is one of their top priorities.
Given that some Manchester United captain players are not happy with Harry Maguire getting the tape, it remains to be seen whether the new manager will take away his responsibility. Many fans believe Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and David de Gea are better candidates to lead the club than the defender.
