Axel Tuanzebe congratulates teammate Harry Maguire for being honored with the captain’s armband at Manchester United.

Harry Maguire made a switch from Leicester City to Manchester United in the summer last year following a big-money move.

The England international, who dethroned Liverpool Virgil van Dijk to become the most expensive defender, has already managed to become one of the key players in the Man United team.

Maguire was also handed the captaincy following Ashley Young’s departure to Inter Milan.

And Axel Tuanzebe feels the center-back is well deserving to lead Manchester United. Tuanzebe congratulated Maguire for earning the armband and praised him for the impact he has had on the team so far.

“Massive respect to him for getting the captaincy,” Tuanzebe told United’s official website.

“For me, I don’t think it is ever about how long you have been somewhere. It is the impact you give and the time you spend with the lads.

“He’s had a massive impact on the club. He has been a real example and has managed to lead the team. I just want to send massive congratulations to Harry, because I think he deserves it with the impact that he’s given to the club.”
