Since being named Manchester United captain, Maguire has faced criticism for his performance, with some arguing that Ronaldo should be given the armband instead. 

Interim Ralf Rangnick, the manager of Manchester United, has responded to claims that Cristiano Ronaldo should be made the club's captain following criticism of Harry Maguire. 

Maguire's form has dipped since his return to Old Trafford from Euro 2020, with the defender facing criticism for his team's lack of leadership on the pitch.

The England international was chosen United captain less than six months after his record-breaking move from Leicester City, but many felt it was a hasty choice. 

The 28-year-old has struggled to live up to the expectations that come with being United's captain on the field, and has been mocked for his many apologies for the team's bad performances.
