Micah Richards, a former Manchester City defender, has advised Harry Maguire, the captain of Manchester United, that he must pass over the armband to Cristiano Ronaldo immediately.
Richards claimed in his SportsMail piece that Maguire “needs assistance” and that he would not join the chorus of critics.
As he stated:
“Harry Maguire needs help in his role as Manchester United captain. This may sound like I’m joining the flood of criticism, but that is absolutely not the case.
“Questioning whether the armband could, in the short term, be passed to Cristiano Ronaldo is no reflection on Harry’s ability or character.”
Richards continued by stating that Maguire was having a difficult time in his career, even among United fans.
