Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick has come out to say that the squad should vote for future captains. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he strongly believes a captain is a team manager and what better way to decide who he should be than his teammates making him their choice.
Rangnick added that captains were selected that way in the past, so it should still be very much possible right now.
His words, “I strongly believe the captain should be elected by the team because he’s called the team manager and we always did that, we always had a board of four or five players — we called it the ‘Spielerrat’ [players’ council] — elected by the players,”
“The player with the highest amount of votes was the team captain at the end. That was how I did it. I know a lot of head coaches don’t do it that way.”
“That’s what I would do if I was still the manager next season but in the end I’m not. This is something that Erik [ten Hag] will have to decide.”
