Maguire captaincy, Solskjaer selections slammed by Man Utd players at team meeting

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire's captaincy is being questioned by teammates.

The Times says one aspect that had irked a member of the squad was the elevation of Maguire to captain just six months after joining the club.

The England centre back was signed in an £80million deal from Leicester in August 2019 but by January 2020 he was handed the armband on a permanent basis.

A clear-the-air meeting between players and management occurred just two days after defeat at Leicester City - with players not holding back on their opinions.

The Maguire captaincy situation wasn't the only issue discussed though during the meeting.

Another player criticised some of his team-mates for an apparent lack of motivation in training.

Solskjaer's tactics and favouritism were also lambasted, as another member asked him why he is so resistant to change a losing team - especially when others are performing well in training.
