 Poor performance in recent times makes the position of the British star increasingly decline.

Rangnick praises Ronaldo

Despite wearing the captain’s armband, centre-back Harry Maguire could not make the fans as well as some of his teammates satisfied with his responsibilities. The British star often makes personal mistakes, pushing the home team into a dangerous situation.

Therefore, coach Ralf Rangnick recently held a meeting including Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo to discuss temporarily removing the captain’s armband of the former Leicester star until the end of the season to relieve the pressure on him. .

 Maguire and Ronaldo had a meeting with Rangnick.

However, according to a source from the Mirror, Maguire does not approve of this option because he is afraid that he will lose his position of captain forever. 

The newspaper added that Maguire is having some conflicts with Ronaldo when the 37-year-old superstar shows a great influence in the dressing room. He led all the young stars and indirectly made Maguire gradually lose his voice.

Currently, the majority of Man Utd players believe that CR7 taking the captain’s armband from Maguire is inevitable. As for Ronaldo, he always supports his junior, but the decision belongs to Rangnick.

A source from Man Utd revealed:  “Initially, Ronaldo is asking the players to support Harry. But the problem is that the coach wants Ronaldo to coach all the younger players. 

“That’s what makes Harry out of place, because he’s the captain but he has to say and do whatever Ronaldo gives him, to keep things calm.”
