Harry Maguire: England and Manchester United star mocked in Ghanaian parliament | Foreign news

Harry Maguire has been mocked by a Ghanaian MP who unfavorably compared the country’s vice president to the England and Manchester United star.

During a debate in Ghana’s parliament, Issac Adongo branded Dr Mahamudu Bawumia a “financial Maguire”, comparing his performances to the defender’s decline since moving to Old Trafford.

MPs roared with laughter at the unexpected football analogy as Adongo accused Dr Bawumia of scoring repeated financial “own goals”.

Mr Adongo told parliament that before he moved to Manchester United, Maguire “tackled everyone and threw his body everywhere … he was regarded as the best defender in the world.”

However, following his move to Old Trafford, Maguire became “the biggest threat in the center of the Manchester United defence”.

“[He was] tackle Manchester players and provide assists to the opposition. Mr Speaker, when you see the opponents going to score, Maguire will score for them,” Adongo said.

“Mr. Speaker,” he continued, “you remember that in this country we also have an economic Maguire. This economic Maguire, we applaud and say that this man is the best at dealing with foreign terms.

“The same economic Maguire was at Central University lecturing on how to restore the value of the Cedi (Ghana’s currency). Mr Speaker why we gave this Maguire the opportunity to be at the center of our defence, he became the rest of our own target. “

Mr Adongo ran through a series of dire financial figures, saying Ghana’s “biggest problem” is that “we are paying the appearance fee for this Maguire”.

The football analogies continued in parliament as another member warned against voting the former president back into power by comparing it to Chelsea’s decision to bring back Romelu Lukaku.

Alex Tetteh Djornobuah MP told members it would be better to “maintain Maguire” rather than bring back a player they now know is “the worst striker in the whole world”.

Ghana face Uruguay in their final World Cup group game on Friday in a repeat of the controversial 2010 quarter-final clash, when Luis Suarez hit a determined goal off target.

The former Liverpool ace has refused to apologize for the incident ahead of the match, saying: “I don’t apologize for it. I take the handball – but the Ghana player missed a penalty, not me. It’s not my fault.”
