EPL – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Antonio Valencia as captain of the Red Devils.
The Ecuadorian had taken charge of the team’s captaincy when Michael Carrick retired to move into coaching.
But Valencia has not been a regular player for the Red Devils this season with some reports suggesting a fall-out with former manager Jose Mourinho.
“He’s (Valencia) the captain. When he’s properly fit and playing he’ll wear the armband,” Solskjaer said during his presser ahead of their clash against Bournemouth.
“He’s going through a couple of tough sessions now to get him ready for the tough period coming up. There aren’t many better right-backs going forward with his abilities.”
“When he’s properly fit and playing, he’ll wear the armband.”
United will hope to maintain their resurgence, since the Norwegian took over as manager, when they take on Bournemouth in one of the fixtures scheduled for Sunday, December 31.
Solskjaer’s United walloped struggling Cardiff 5-1 last week Saturday and humbled Huddersfield Town 3-1 at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.
