4 Reasons why Ronaldo should be made The New Captain at Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered to be one of the world’s greatest footballers of all time. The 36-year-old Portuguese professional footballer made headlines when he made a surprise return to his English Premier League boyhood, club Manchester United.

In this article, I’ll be sharing with you four reasons why the newly signed Manchester United star should be made the club’s new captain.

1. He is a Club Legend

Cristiano played for at Old Trafford during the Sir Alex Ferguson era alongside the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, the club’s current coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and many more.

He knows the history of Manchester United more than any player who currently plays and played a major in the accomplishments and trophies during his time at the club.

There’s no doubt that if for any reason a player like him still plays at Old Trafford then such a player is in the best position to wear the club’s captain armband.

2. He is Older and Much More Experienced Than United’s Current Captain

Ronaldo is eight years old than the club’s 28-year-old current captain Harry Maguire, and his experience as a footballer surpasses that of the English defender in every way.

3. He Has Proven To Be a Capable Captain For The Portuguese Football Team And Could Do The Same at United

Very few captains carry their team the way the 36-year-old footballer carries the Portuguese national football team in major international competitions.

There’s no doubt that Portugal’s national football team is always a much better side when playing alongside their captain, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s positive impact on the team is often visible to everyone.


Making a player like Ronaldo the captain of Manchester United will, without doubt, make them a much better side against opponents both in the premier league and European clubs tournaments.

4. Has a Higher Reputation Than The Club’s Current Captain

Cristiano is widely considered to be one of the greatest players of all time and is also a club legend.

Many successful players in Manchester United and other reputable football clubs look up to Ronaldo as a role model and a football legend. His accomplishments give him a higher reputation than Harry Maguire who also holds the Portuguese player with high regard.

Ronaldo becoming the club’s captain will make the team more balanced on the pitch and is also likely to prevent possible dressing room problems.
