Manchester United coach, Erik Ten Hag has issued very strong warning to Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire over his role as a captain.
Ten Hag warned Harry Maguire that his place in the starting lineup is not a guarantee despite being club captain.
Harry Maguire was left on the bench by the Manchester United manager in their last Premier League game against Liverpool where they registered their first win of the season.
Speaking to reporters, Ten Hag said, “It doesn’t mean when you are captain, you are established to play always, especially when you also have Varane in your squad. We have options. Varane’s stature is immense and in pre-season, we took a decision to build him physically, so he had a bit of a slow start.”
The centre-back pairing of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez proved to be a formidable one against Liverpool and the Dutch manager may not want to tweak the winning combination in the coming matches.
