Who is captain of Manchester United? Is Ronaldo captain of Manchester United?

Ralf Rangnick has called on Cristiano Ronaldo to mentor the young players and asked Harry Maguire to relinquish his armband for the rest of the season. Ronaldo and Maguire are embroiled in a power struggle over the Manchester United captaincy.
Maquire refused the requirement for fear of losing the captaincy on a permanent basis. The huge influence of Ronaldo with the dressing-room undermines United skipper Maguire.
In 2019, Maguire joined from Leicester to Manchester United for £80million. Two years ago, he was handed the United captain’s armband two years ago by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Is Ronaldo captain of Manchester United?

The Portugal forward was given the armband in the absence of Harry Maguire against Wolves. But Rangnick insists that he has no plan to give permanent Man United captaincy to Ronaldo. Ronaldo captained United for the first time in the Premier League defeat against Wolves with Maguire out injured. Rangnick said, “Right now I don’t see a reason to do that because Harry has been the captain so far and as long as Harry is playing he will be the captain.”
