Footballer Harry Maguire accepts Ghana MP’s apology

Harry Maguire

Manchester United footballer Harry Maguire has accepted the apology of a Ghanaian MP who ridiculed him last year.

Isaac Adongo had caused laughter in parliament last year when he described Maguire as “the biggest threat at the centre of the Manchester United defence.”

The opposition MP publicly apologised on Tuesday, admitting the defender was now a “transformational footballer… now scoring goals for Manchester United”.

Responding to the apology, Maguire wrote on X: “MP Isaac Adongo apology accepted. See you at Old Trafford soon”.

Mr Adongo had compared Maguire’s performance to that of Ghana’s Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, whom he continues to criticise for the poor management of the country’s economy.

“As for our Maguire, he is now at the IMF, with a cup in hand,” Mr Adongo said after his apology.

Ghana is currently under a $3bn (£2.4bn) IMF programme after experiencing the worst inflation in a decade, coupled with soaring debt levels.
