‘Legend already’ and ‘make him captain’ – These Manchester United fans love Harry Maguire’s sly dig at Liverpool in farewell tweet to Leicester

Posted by

Some Manchester United fans are already in love with Harry Maguire after his sly dig towards rivals Liverpool in this post on social media today.

Manchester United announced the signing of England international Harry Maguire from Leicester City earlier today.

As per Manchester United’s official website, the defender has  signed a six-year contract with the Red Devils – with the option of a further year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were in dire need of adding a quality centre-back to their ranks this summer, the Red Devils conceded the second-most goals out of teams in the top ten last season.

Following his announcement as United’s newest signing, Maguire took to Twitter to bid farewell to Leicester City and the star’s image choice has made him an instant favourite with United fans.

The England international accompanied the post with the picture of him celebrating a goal against Liverpool earlier this year in a 1-1 draw.

Maguire’s crucial equaliser proved to be a devastating blow to Liverpool’s hopes of winning the league, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City capitalised on the Reds’ dropped points in the New Year period.

United fans would have absolutely hated to see their heated rivals lift the Premier League trophy last season and it seems that Maguire wants to remind fans of his role in last season’s title race.

Take a look at some reaction from excited United fans to Maguire’s post:

At 26 years of age, Maguire has the perfect blend of experience and youth to help Solskjaer steer the Red Devils back to their former glory.

The Sheffield United academy graduate has 101 Premier League appearances to his name and he’ll undoubtedly be cornerstone of United’s defence, helping along fellow summer signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka and likely centre-back partner Victor Lindelof.
