Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Antonio Valencia as captain of Manchester United.
The caretaker manager confirmed the Ecuadorian as captain despite him not being a regular player this season with some reports suggesting a fall-out with sacked manager, Jose Mourinho.
“He’s (Valencia) the captain. When he’s properly fit and playing he’ll wear the armband,” Solskjaer said during his presser ahead of their clash against Bournemouth.
