Harry Maguire approves objectionable fan chant after dramatic Manchester United win in UCL

Harry Maguire has encountered numerous challenges during his time at Manchester United, including losing his place in the starting lineup and the captaincy to Bruno Fernandes. There were even reports of a potential move to West Ham United. However, he decided to stay and fight for his spot. It’s remarkable how he has emerged as an instrumental player in keeping the team’s Champions League qualification hopes alive, which is a testament to his determination and resilience.

Maguire had a remarkable turnaround at Old Trafford, going from being viewed as a villain to a hero. His header secured a crucial victory that kept Manchester United’s hopes of reaching the Champions League last-16 alive. Following the match, he took to Instagram to celebrate the victory.

He chose to celebrate his decisive goal in Manchester United’s 1-0 victory against FC Copenhagen on Tuesday by joining in a popular chant that pays tribute to his ‘massive head’ and aerial ability.

Maguire shared a picture of his match-winning goal on his Instagram story, accompanied by the lyrics “his head’s f* massiiive, 1, 2, 3, 4.” These lyrics are part of a chant that Leicester fans created in honor of Maguire during his tenure at the King Power Stadium, and it has been embraced by Manchester United fans as well.

“He is playing much more proactive in possession, stepping in, passing vertically, defending also on the front foot, defending forward, very confident in the duels,” said the United boss. “I think he is dominating in the right way with his aggression against opponents.”

Following his impressive midweek performance, it’s possible that Harry Maguire may be included in the starting lineup alongside Raphael Varane for the upcoming Manchester derby against Manchester City on Sunday.
