Ole reveals a change in captaincy
Watch the moment when Solskjaer confirmed Young's imminent departure and Maguire's appointment as United captain...
Can you tell us about your captain? He's on his way to Italy for a medical. How sad are you that that's not worked out in terms of keeping him, because you wanted to? “Well to be fair, I think it was for Ashley, you know, he is 35 in the summer and if he gets a two-year contract somewhere I think it's up to him to take that. We weren't ready to offer that. He's been a good servant for the club, he's been captain, he's won trophies, leagues, cups, but we've got players coming through. So it was time now then. When Ashley's head and mindset was on yeah I want to try this, so why not do it now?” Who is your new captain? “Harry has been wearing the captain's armband and he will keep wearing it. He's come in and been a leader in the group. I've been, not surprised, but I've been impressed by his leadership skills, so Harry will keep on wearing the armband.” I don't recall any player including Roy or Eric or anybody getting the captaincy quite so quickly? “He's come in and everything about him tells me he is a leader. He's part of a group that we've had, that have been leading this young group. Ashley has been of course, Marcus is a young lad, but also David, Harry. So Harry will keep on wearing the armband now.”
