Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explains why Harry Maguire could be the next Manchester United captain

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Harry Maguire has already displayed qualities that could make him future Manchester United captain. 

Maguire completed a world record £80million transfer from Leicester City in the summer transfer window and is set to face his former club for the first time on Saturday 14th September. The England international bagged the man of the match award in the 4-0 win over Chelsea but has failed to keep a clean sheet since then for United.

Solskjaer heaped praise on Maguire, tipping him to become future United captain, "I think he's been brilliant. I think he's come into the dressing room and been a leader. He's also a leader on the pitch, you can see that. And I'm sure he's looking forward to playing against his old team, but now he's here.

"He's going to be a big part of the future of this club, that's why I know so much about Leicester as well, because we've watched him enough to know he's the guy we wanted, that's why we spent the money we did on him, Leicester didn't want to lose him.

Character

"But when you look at Michael Carrick the other night [in Vincent Kompany's testimonial] there's a ball playing center-back, so maybe they could play together, the two of them. But he's in bits now, Carras. He's a definitely a character and personality that can be captain of a big club.

"In the dressing room, he's a leader both by performances, presence, stature, and behavior, he's a character you'd say you'd like to follow. Some are technical leaders, some are leaders by voice, and he's got the lot, really."
