Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Harry Maguire will remain as captain for the 2020-21 season.

Maguire was found guilty on charges of assault, resisting arrest and bribery during a controversial incident on holiday in Greece.

The England international was subsequently handed a suspended sentence by a Greek court, with England boss Gareth Southgate opted to leave him out of their Nations League squad.

However, Solskjaer has moved to back his skipper, telling an interview with MUTV he would continue to support Maguire in his appeal.

And with United’s Premier League start has been put back a week, with Solskjaer’s men set to kick off against Crystal Palace next weekend.
