Man Utd skipper Maguire spies Tuanzebe leadership qualities

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has no doubts about the future of Axel Tuanzebe at Old Trafford.

Indeed, Maguire has tipped Tuanzebe to be a future United captain.

And he believes the likes of Bruno Fernandes and David De Gea are playing their part in the changing room too.

Maguire told the UTD podcast: “We have a lot of leaders in the dressing room, a lot of senior pros. And you don't have to be a senior pro to be a leader.

"Axel [Tuanzebe] is a leader, in the ways that he works and speaks in the dressing room. And he's only a young boy, he's still learning his trade – I'm sure he'll go on to have an unbelievable career.

“I think we have a lot of leaders. There's Bruno [Fernandes], who has come in and made a massive impact at the club, results-wise but also off the field.

"His mentality – it rubs off on other people when you have a strong mentality, a winning mentality.

“Nemanja [Matic], Juan [Mata], David [De Gea] – they've been at the club a while now. There's definitely a lot of leaders in the dressing room."
