Harry Maguire Completely Forgets He's The Captain Of Manchester United In Awkward Coin Toss

Harry Maguire Completely Forgets He's The Captain Of Manchester United In Awkward Coin Toss

Harry Maguire was named Manchester United captain for the club's Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade on Thursday night, but things didn't exactly go to plan for the world's most expensive defender.

Ahead of kick-off at the Partizan Stadium, the 26-year-old was called by referee Xavier Fernandez to join him in a traditional coin toss as fellow captain Vladimir Stojković looked on with a grin on his face.

Fernandez, who was joined by fellow assistants Roberto Alonso and Inigo Prieto, shouted "Maguire...Harry!" before the England international awkwardly ran over to complete his duties.

It was all a tad awkward.

Maguire, who has made 13 appearances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, eventually swapped crests with the Serbian goalkeeper on his first appearance in European competition.

It was a moment the centre-back will want to forget as plenty on social media picked up on his antics.

"That has to be the least confidence inspiring bit of footage I've ever seen of a captain." said one Twitter user, while another said: "He doesn't even know how it works."

Harry Maguire Needs Dropping From Manchester United Squad "For His Own Good"

Maguire, to his defence, has kept a clean sheet against Savo Milosevic's side as United go into the half-time break 1-0 up.

Anthony Martial calmly converted from the penalty spot with 42 minutes on the clock after young full back Brandon Williams was fouled in the area.

Solskjaer's side held out for all three points in the second half as they sit top of Group L with seven points from a possible nine.

Thoughts on Thursday night's game against Partizan?
