  • Honourable Isaac Adongo has apologised to Manchester United's Harry Maguire
  • The Ghanaian MP mocked Maguire last year with a comparison to the vice president
  • The defender has been in decent form for Manchester United in recent matches

The Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Honourable Isaac Adongo has finally apologised to Harry Maguire a year after mocking the Manchester United defender.

Honourable Adongo went viral during one of his submissions last year after comparing the footballer to the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

However, in Parliament on Tuesday, the MP praised Maguire for his 'positive transformation' while criticising Dr Bawumia for the country's economic woes.

"Mr Speaker, you'll remember last year I was very quick to compare my big brother, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, to Harry Maguire. Mr Speaker, I now apologise to Maguire. Honourable Kyei Mensah, you got angry when I used your defender," he said on the floor of Parliament, as sighted on social media.

Honourable Adongo praised Maguire for 'turning the corner', becoming a 'transformational footballer', and for becoming a key player for the English giants.

"As for our Maguire, he is now roaming at the IMF with a cup in hand. Our Maguire is able to get pensioners to leave their homes and come and protest."

Maguire has been key for Erik ten Hag's men this season despite a tough start to the season for Man United. The Engish defender has made 11 appearances across all competitions this season, per Transfermarkt.

Rooney replies to MP over Maguire comments

Sports Brief previously reported on Wayne Rooney describing Ghanaian MP Adongo's joke, comparing Maguire to the Vice President, as 'crazy'.

The Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central Constituency went viral for saying Dr Bawumia should be seen as an 'economic Maguire'.

According to Adongo, Maguire has been poor since joining Manchester United despite showing promise during his time at Leicester City.

Sports Brief also reported on Adongo's controversial submission about Harry Maguire resurfacing after the player's terrible display against Sevilla.

Maguire's eighth-minute mistake saw Man United concede early in their UEFA Europa League quarter-final second-leg clash against the Spanish outfit.

The Red Devils ended up losing that game 3-0 and have now crashed out of the competition, following the defender's disastrous display in Seville.
