‘This man is an economic Harry Maguire’: Bizarre moment Ghanian politician repeatedly mocks the Manchester United and England defender to criticise a political rival’s budget mishaps
- Isaac Adango launched into astonishing attack on his rival using Harry Maguire
- Ghanian politician said that his political rival had scored own goal after own goal
- Referenced Maguire’s poor stint as a Manchester United player in his speech
Bizarre footage has circulated from the Ghanian parliament showing a politician referencing Harry Maguire in a speech discrediting his political rival’s economic policies.
Standing up to start his retort, Isaac Adango began by praising the national side for their victory over South Korea earlier in the week before going on an extraordinary rant using Maguire as his main reference point.
Addressing the country’s national assembly, Adango said Ghana’s vice-president Mahamudu Bawumia enjoyed scoring – political – own goals in much the same manner as the Manchester United and England defender.
Isaac Adango – a Ghanian politician – referenced Harry Maguire in his attack on a political rival
In an extraordinary attack that may come as a bit of a shock to the defender, who has been one of England’s standout performers at this World Cup despite coming into it, the politician left the room in hysterics.
‘If you are a fan of football, and I am happy to see you the other day, jubilating when Ghana won. But there is a player like you in the United Kingdom in England called Maguire that is playing for Manchester United.
‘Harry Maguire. He is a defender. He was tackling and throwing his body everywhere like he was the best defender in the world.
Adango claimed that when Mahamudu Bawumia was given the chance to run the country’s defence (nay economy) he became their own Harry Maguire
‘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.
‘Even when the opponents failed to score, Maguire would score for them.’
He continued: ‘Mr Speaker, you will remember in this country we also have an economic Maguire.
He said that the ‘economic Maguire’ was taking the fundamentals of the country’s economy and destroying them all
Maguire – despite a poor season overall in which he has lost his club spot – has performed in Qatar
‘In this country we have an economic Maguire. The same economic Maguire was giving lectures at university on how to restore the value of the city.
‘Mr Speaker why did we give this Maguire the chance to be at the centre of our defence? He became the risk of own goal.’
More existentially, he then doubled down on his line of attack, saying that Ghana’s own ‘economic Maguire’ was destroying the country’s fragile economy.
‘Our economic Maguire is taking control of the fundamentals of our economy and destroying all of them,’ he said.
The reason why the politicians were having the debate in English was because there are so many sub-languages and dialects within the country, with each region possessing its own native tongue.
