Man Utd urged to strip Harry Maguire of captaincy as former team-mate rips into defender


Harry Maguire’s former Hull City team-mate Ahmed Elmohamady has urged Manchester United to strip him of the captaincy. Maguire has come under mass scrutiny for his performances this season, but Elmohamady’s damning criticism will particularly cut deep given their past alliance.

He told beIN SPORTS: “Harry was with me in Hull City, and, in my opinion, he doesn’t have the level to be the Manchester United captain.

“United need a player with a strong personality, and I hope that the next manager will give the captaincy to Ronaldo if he stays.

“Maguire performed really well with Leicester, a team that competes to be top six of the Premier League.

“Maybe this is his level. He doesn’t have the level to play for the biggest team in the history of England.”
