Cristiano Ronaldo gave a very candid interview on Sky Sports, said he was not satisfied with some things going on at MU and said the team must aim for the top 3 instead of just accepting a moderate result. enough to qualify for the Champions League. He also said that the young players at the club were not receptive to the “teaching” of the seniors, although Ronaldo said he was always ready to help them.

The fact that Ronaldo told the truth, therefore, also received the approval of the majority of “Red Devils” fans.
Moreover, the club is giving the captaincy to Harry Maguire, who is in very bad form. Since Maguire took the captaincy, there have been many question marks raised about the English midfielder’s status, because he was given the role in the first season to play under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Reacting to Ronaldo’s interview, many MU fans have expressed the hope that he will be given the role of captain at the club, or at least take the vice captain’s armband and leave the role of captain in the hands of David De Gea or Bruno Fernandes. Jamie Jackson of The Guardian expressed support for Maguire’s view of stripping the captain’s armband in an analysis article about the current MU, but did not choose Ronaldo instead.
“I believe that MU should not continue to keep Maguire as captain at this time, they have three other players who are more deserving. Among them Ronaldo and De Gea can be vice captains, they have seniority with progress and want to help teammates, while Fernandes not only has those qualities but also knows how to direct players on the field. yard,” Jackson wrote.
Former center-back Rio Ferdinand supported this view when commenting for BT Sport. “Maguire should focus on playing well, and as for the captaincy, I think MU still has worthy players. If it were me, De Gea would be the choice because he has served many years at MU and knows how to handle every game. Ronaldo is also an option but De Gea has been with the club longer,” commented Ferdinand.
