Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has given his reason for playing Harry Maguire in nearly every competitive match since he joined the company. .
The former Leicester man featured in every Premier League match for United last season, becoming only the second player to do so after Gary Pallister, and that has raised concerns of a possible burnout.
But speakings to the club’s official website recently, when asked about the decisions, Solskjaer explained, “First of all, he’s desperate to play, he’s the captain.
“There’s a reason why he’s the captain: he always wants to play, but he’s always ready to play.
“He’s missed one game, two games this season maybe through some illness, and I think he just gets sharper and sharper the more he plays. He’ll get his time off after this tournament, so no worries about that.”
Truth be told, Maguire does want to play, and he deserves some appreciation for always putting the team ahead of himself. It’s a special quality, and we guess that’s what makes him the captain.
It was recently reported the centre back even had to endure injury to play for the club, and ensure top four success, and looking at where we finished in the league last season, we’re super happy the sacrifice paid off.
