Former teammate claims Harry Maguire doesn’t have “the level” to be Manchester United captain

Ahmed Elmohamady and Harry Maguire used to play together at Hull City.

Speaking to BeIN Sports about his former teammate, the Egyptian said: “Harry was with me in Hull City and, in my opinion, he doesn’t have the level to be the Manchester United captain.

Elmohamady claims that if anyone at the club should be captain, it should be current hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United need a player with a strong personality and I hope that the next manager will give the captaincy to Ronaldo, if he stays. Ronaldo can handle this responsibility and pressure.

However, Maguire can’t handle this pressure. So I think that the pressure he has by wearing the captain’s armband is affecting his performances.

Maguire performed really well with Leicester, a team that competes to be in the top six of the Premier League, and maybe this is his level. He doesn’t have the level to play for the biggest team in the history of England.”

There has been a lot of rumours in recent months surrounding the occupancy of the Manchester United armband. Rumours suggested that players thought Ronaldo should be captain, however Ralf Rangnick swiftly dismissed these rumours in a press conference.
