Manchester United Names Valencia Club Captain For 2018/2019 Season

Published

Antonio Valencia is set to keep the Manchester United captaincy this season, following Michael Carrick’s retirement.

Carrick was United’s club captain in his last season as a player, but only made five appearances, before taking a place on Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff.

There have been talks that Nemanja Matic or Paul Pogba could take on the role, but Mourinho has indicated that Valencia is likely to lead the team again.

“The captain was Valencia last season, and I think he’s going to be the captain.

“When he doesn’t play, we have to make decisions.

“It depends on who is on the pitch. If Smalling is, Ashley Young is, if (Ander) Herrera is or (Juan) Mata is, if they are on the pitch they have an option.

“Matic has all the attributes to be Manchester United captain, but he arrived only one year ago,” Mourinho told reporters at their training base in the US.
