Manchester United new boy, Harry Maguire has tried to convince his new manager into believing that he is fit for his new side’s league opener.
Harry Maguire completed his long awaited and much talked about Man United move, after the Red Devils agreed to pay £80m for the English defender.
Now with the desired club and waiting to prove he’s really worth the heavy amount spent on his head, the former Leicester City man, while talking to the club’s official website, disclosed that he’s very much fit for his first match.
Having been reported by Metro, of earlier suffering little health issues, the defender revealed that while with the Foxes, he has been working hard ahead of a move he has always wished for.
‘Yeah, I tend to get my head down – I’ve worked hard, I’ve done every session and I’ve played every game for Leicester so my fitness is there
‘That was a big part for me to play because if I ended up getting the move that I wanted, I would have been fit and in contention to play the first game.
‘I feel like I’m ready to go, but obviously it’s the gaffer’s decision.’
Maguire said the MUFC.com as he didn’t forget to entail that it’s Ole’s decision to make if he plays or not.
The 26-year-old also disclosed how memorable the 2018/2019 opener was for him when he featured against the Red Devils while putting on the blue jersey.
‘It’s incredible,’ he said.
‘It’s a really proud moment for me to join such a big club, I’m really looking forward to it and I can’t wait to get started.
‘Like you said, the first game last season was at Old Trafford – it’s the fixture that I always look for when I’ve been playing in the Premier League, Old Trafford away and now it’s my home, so I can’t wait to get started.’
Harry went on to disclose that he has always been a lover of the Red Devils and has always wished to walk on the Old Trafford grass with the ‘at home’ feeling.
‘It’s an amazing club. It’s a club I’ve always watched and I’ve always looked up to when I was younger,’ Maguire added.
‘You always dream of walking out at Wembley and Old Trafford, they’re the two big stadiums when you’re a young kid, and now I’m part of it.
‘I’ve come here today and everyone’s been so welcoming, I can’t wait to get started and I can’t wait to meet the lads and hopefully we can kick on.’
Maguire is the third transfer Manchester United completed during the 2019/2020 window after Swansea’s Daniel James and Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
