Maguire to remain Man United captain


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Harry Maguire will remain the club’s captain despite the recent incident in Greece.

Maguire was given a suspended prison sentence on the Greek island of Syros after being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.

“He is going to be our captain, he’s handled it really well and, of course, I’ll be here to support him,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“We’ll just leave Harry and his people and the process to run. For me, he is a top, an absolute top human being and has always been a positive guy with the right values. So I really hope we can see Harry performing at his best.”

Maguire was withdrawn from the England squad last month, but manager Gareth Southgate says he will absolutely be looking to recall the defender in October.

The 27-year-old maintains his innocence and has appealed against the decision, which nullifies the conviction.
