WATCH: Maguire Man Utd form woes raised in Ghana parliament

Harry Maguire's form woes with Manchester United have been raised in Ghanaian parliament.

Isaac Adongo, 50, was elected to parliament for the first time last year and hit out at the Vice President in a debate over the 2023 budget.

At which point the MP turned to football to press home his point as he referenced Maguire, currently staring for England at the World Cup.

Mr Adongo said: "If you're a fan of football ... there was a player in England called [Harry] Maguire who was playing for Manchester United. He's a defender.

"[At Leicester] he was tackling everybody and throwing his body everywhere. He was seen as the best defender in the world.

"Manchester United went and bought him. He became the biggest threat at the centre of Manchester United's defence, tackling [his own] players and giving assists to opponents.

"Mr Speaker, when even opponents fail to score, Maguire will score for them.

"Mr Speaker, you remember in this country we also have an Economic Maguire."

He then added that the VP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, scored "own goals" like the defender.
