How will the arrival of Edinson Cavani impact Odion Ighalo?
“I think, as a team and club, we always want to get players in. I think Edinson coming in will try and do that to the Premier League, and we’ll give him time to adapt to this team and to get his sharpness and fitness back. We’ve had some very good performances from Odion and he is still a very important part of this squad.”
Harry Maguire’s injury, will it keep him out for the weekend as well? And in his absence, who will your captain be tomorrow?
“We hope Harry will be fit for the weekend, we’re not sure, but we hope so. The captain sits next to me. Bruno will captain the team tomorrow.”
Bruno, you’re captain but you’ve only been here for nine months. How do you feel about that?
“I was not expecting this. I know the same time as you. Of course, for me, it’s an honour I will be captain for my team-mates and being captain of Manchester United is important for me. I think the captain is everybody and everyone needs to help; everyone needs to be a leader. The leadership is different in every player. Tomorrow will not be about me, it’s about the team. Leading the team is every day in the training ground, every training, every game, and I think everyone is doing their own job to lead the team in the way they think is the best.”
