Gary Neville piles pressure on Harry Maguire as he’s named Man Utd captain

Gary Neville has warned Harry Maguire that "s*** will come thick and fast" now that he is Manchester United's new captain.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the centre-back would be the club's new permanent skipper as Ashley Young neared the Old Trafford exit.

After Young's transfer to Inter Milan was confirmed on Friday night, Maguire took to Twitter to officially announce he is the new United captain.

He wrote: "Dream come true to be named the Manchester United captain. Proud moment and huge honour. Just want to wish Ashley Young all the best at Inter Milan."

A number of fellow and former professionals congratulated Maguire on the achievement.

Among them, ex-Red Devils right back Neville wished the centre-back all the best. But he did so alongside a warning.

Neville tweeted: "Congratulations! The s*** will come thick and fast in the next year or two. Stick at it as you are the captain of the biggest club in the world and it will rise and win again."

Maguire later replied to Neville: "Thanks a lot, appreciate the message."

Solskjaer had told Maguire in advance of his plan to hand him the captain's armband the moment Young's move to Inter was confirmed.
