Harry Maguire’s first game as Manchester United captain didn’t get off to the best start as he made a blunder before the game even kicked off.
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.
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.
BT Sport cameras captured Partizan skipper and goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic waiting patiently for the England international to join him at the centre circle.
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.”
