Cristiano Ronaldo should replace Harry Maguire as Manchester United captain, according to Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies.
A video surfaced on YouTube of the Canada international making the astonishing assessment while playing FIFA 22 on streaming service Twitch.
Maguire has found himself a scapegoat during another difficult season for United, who are seventh in the Premier League and three points behind Tottenham in fourth.
Following several below-par performances and high-profile mistakes, the England international was also booed by sections of the Wembley crowd during the Three Lions’ recent friendly against Ivory Coast.
Many have questioned the decision to hand the defender the armband over Ronaldo, who returned to Old Trafford from Juventus last August.
And Davies followed suit during a mini rant when acquiring Maguire in a pack on the Ultimate Team game mode.
Turning down his music, the Bayern defender said: “Can you guys imagine?! Can you guys imagine?!
“You’re Ronaldo; one of the greatest players ever. And what’s his name is your captain? Harry Maguire is your captain?!
“And you refer to him as ‘yes cap’ – I don’t know what he says to him.
“I’m not dissing Harry Maguire, but Ronaldo should get the armband.”
