According to the Manchester United boss, youngster Harry Maguire can someday become the Red Devils’ club captain as he has the skills to do so.

England international Harry Maguire is still making headlines.

The player moved from Leicester City in a record-breaking £80 million deal to Manchester United.

And now, Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his captain material.

“He’s definitely a character and personality that can be captain of a big club,” Solskjaer told Goal.

“In the dressing room, he’s a leader both by performance, stature, and behavior.”

“He’s a character you’d like to follow. Some are technical leaders, some are leaders by voice – he’s got the lot,” he added.

“I think he’s come into the dressing room, been a leader, he’s also a leader on the pitch and I’m sure he’s looking forward to playing against his old team.”

“Now he’s here he’s going to be a big part of the future of this club,” he commented.

“We’ve watched him enough to know he’s the guy we wanted, that’s why we spent the money we did on him. Leicester didn’t want to lose him.”
