Ten Hag considers making CR7 the captain so he doesn’t want to leave the Man. united
Manchester United considers giving the captain’s armband to Cristiano Ronaldo, in order to soften [ou ‘amaciar’] the dissatisfaction of the forward, who is angry with the club’s managers due to inertia in the market – there is still no reinforcement! He even confesses that he is willing to abandon the project!
This armband decision would be to combine the useful with the pleasant. On the one hand, it would give a special and symbolic motivation to the 37-year-old goalscorer to lead a club for which he feels a special affection, despite the fact that last season fell far short of expectations – sixth in the league and no trophies won. On the other hand, he would take pressure off the central Maguire, captain of the team much criticized by the press and the fans due to the lack of leadership in the field and successive defensive mistakes. Spaniard De Gea will be the other natural candidate for the armband, as will Bruno Fernandes, the midfielder who captained the team in Maguire’s absence.
No new faces!
The Man. United started the new season yesterday without new faces and with just 15 players under Ten Hag’s orders. The highlight was the return of Van de Beek and Martial, players who were on loan last season to Everton and Sevilla, respectively. most of the squad [Cristiano, por exemplo] he also enjoys the vacation period after the commitments at the service of the national teams. The red devils kick off a tour of Asia on July 8th. The first friendly is scheduled for the 12th against Liverpool, in Bangkok, Thailand.
