Rangnick Pulls Support for Underfire Captain

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has weighed his support for clubs captain Harry Maguire in the wake of his recent scrutiny for underperforming.

The interim boss Ralf Rangnick said, “In the past two games, yeah he had some weaker moments, against Southampton and when we conceded the goal at Burnley, but he’s our captain and I don’t see any reason to change that.

“I think when he came back after his injury he did extremely well. He had a very good performance, a very good game against West Ham.

“In the past two games, yeah he had some weaker moments, against Southampton and when we conceded the goal at Burnley, but he’s our captain and I don’t see any reason to change that.”

“He’s a player who has to develop, get better, like all the other players.

“The way that we are playing now is new also to him because in the English national team he was used to playing in a back three and here at Manchester United, in most cases a back four, but still not being as proactive, not with that kind of rest defence always being on the front foot when we are trying to defend.

“This is something also new to him and it will also take some time for him to get used to that, to get adjusted to that.”

Harry Maguire who was named United captain by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer barely five months after he joined the club has been criticised by fans and pundits for his below-par performances in games.

Maguire, if selected, would be looking to make an impact to revive the clubs season when they host Brighton and Hoves Albion today.
