Harry Maguire has expressed his delight at being named captain of Manchester United.

In January, the 27-year-old took over the armband from Ashley Young, who was on his way to Inter Milan after joining from Leicester City in a world-record transfer for a defender.

Maguire lost his first two games as captain but has since gone undefeated in 11 games, winning eight of them.

“It’s a great honor to be captain of this great club,” the England international told Inside United.

“I’ve not thought or behaved any differently. On the pitch, I see myself as quite a presence and quite vocal around the lads.” We’re a young group that needs experience, and we have players like Victor [Lindelof], David [De Gea], and Juan [Mata] who have a lot of experience in the locker room.

We need to assist these young boys in their development to ensure that we grow into a top team that can compete for big trophies.”

Maguire has made 41 appearances for United in all competitions this season and has been an ever-present in the Premier League.
