The race to become Manchester United’s next captain may be heating up.
With former captain Harry Maguire seemingly set to leave the club, British media outlets have reported that star midfielder Bruno Fernandes will wear the captain’s armband next season.
The Portuguese international has been at United for over two and a half years now, and was vice-captain last season.
Fernandes has always been a leader on and off the field, often pushing his teammates hard.
But there was a change. Casemiro joined United last season and quickly established himself in the team.
He’s even developed a “self-appeal. “I like being a leader, being an example for other players,” he said in a recent interview.
Over the course of a season, Casemiro made a strong impact. He has earned the trust of his teammates and fans alike by anchoring United’s midfield with his class. 메이저사이트
“Fernandes faces competition to become the next United captain,” wrote The Sun.
Of course, the United captaincy is not yet vacant. Maguire is still at United. There are only rumors of a move to another club.
