Manchester United defender Harry Maguire's captaincy is being questioned by teammates.

The Times says one aspect that had irked a member of the squad was the elevation of Maguire to captain just six months after joining the club.

The England centre back was signed in an £80million deal from Leicester in August 2019 but by January 2020 he was handed the armband on a permanent basis.

A clear-the-air meeting between players and management occurred just two days after defeat at Leicester City - with players not holding back on their opinions.

The Maguire captaincy situation wasn't the only issue discussed though during the meeting.

Another player criticised some of his team-mates for an apparent lack of motivation in training.

Solskjaer's tactics and favouritism were also lambasted, as another member asked him why he is so resistant to change a losing team - especially when others are performing well in training.
