PAUL INCE believes Scott McTominay should have been named Manchester United captain instead of Cristiano Ronaldo for the match against Wolves.
Ronaldo, 36, was given the captain's armband by Ralf Rangnick due to Harry Maguire being out injured.
But Ince believes that was the wrong decision due to Ronaldo often displaying a poor attitude on the pitch.
He said on Sky Sports' coverage of United vs Wolves: "I would give it to McTominay. I think the captain should be based on his performances of what he's done it on the pitch.
"He's 25, it would be a nice learning curve for him.
"Why give it to Ronaldo? Everyone moaning about Ronaldo walking off the pitch every time United get beat.
"It's also about setting an example and I think (with) the way McTominay's playing, give it to him and let him have a go."
McTominay impressed in his goalscoring performance against Burnley last week but he failed to replicate it against Wolves.

But Ronaldo also struggled as his team-mates created few chances for him.
The forward did put the ball in the back of the net in the second half but his header was ruled out for offside before Joao Moutinho won the game for Wolves late on.
Ronaldo could hold onto the armband if Maguire's rib issue rules him out of the FA Cup clash against Aston Villa next Monday.
