Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a former manager at Manchester United, has applauded Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay for disproving the claims of the team’s current manager, Erik ten Hag.

After Ten Hag stripped Maguire of the captaincy, it appeared that he would be leaving Old Trafford in the summer.

The England international was extensively connected with West Ham, but a deal was not achieved between all sides.

Maguire, who has had trouble getting playing time under Ten Hag, turned in a string of strong displays just before the international break.

“I think he has dealt with it in a fantastic way,” Solskjaer told Nettavisen.

The struggle has been real. I have maintained contact with him and can’t speak highly enough of the man.

Over time, he’s probably figured out who to trust and who to ignore. For my part, I’m thrilled to see Harry finally come into his own as a player, but also as a person. For this reason, I appointed him captain. ‘Hell wood’ is what we Norwegians refer to it as.

Solskjaer has also spoken highly of McTominay, who was rumored to be leaving United this summer.

Solskjaer was confident that his team had what it took, and he believes that people of their character are rewarded for their efforts.
