Manchester United fullback, Antonio Valencia, is set to remain as the club’s captain according to the words of his manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Valencia, who has made just four appearances in the Premier League, PL, this season has been out of the United team since the Red Devils lost to Spanish side, Valencia, in the UEFA Champions League.
This has led to questions about his position as club captain, with Solskjaer confirming on Friday that the Ecuadorian defender will retain the armband.
“When he’s properly fit and playing, he’ll wear the armband,” he said during his pre-match press conference.
United have been enjoying life under their former player since he took over as Caretaker manager following the sack of former manager, José Mourinho.
This weekend, the Red Devils are at home as they welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford on Sunday and Solskjaer hopes his players can continue with their positive run.
“When you win, everyone is happy,” he added. “So, let’s just keep that run going, We’ve got to focus on our performance against Bournemouth and get three points because the last two games have been fantastic.”
Solskjaer’s United have won two in two matches, scoring eight goals and conceding two. They will be hoping to make it a third successive win under the Norwegian when they take on the Cherries.
