 I’m sorry – Paul Merson phones Man United star, apologises to him - EPL PAUL-MERSON-1142944



Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has revealed he called Manchester United star, Harry Maguire to apologise to him after going ‘a bit too far' in his criticism of the England international.

Maguire joined Manchester United in the summer of 2019 and became the most expensive defender in history after a £80m transfer.

The 29-year-old has not had it smoothly at Manchester United and has always been on the receiving end of fans and pundits.

When the deal to Old Trafford was completed, Merson expressed shock at the fee the Red Devils paid for the defender, calling it ‘ridiculous'.

Speaking to Sky Sports in 2019, Merson said: “£80m for Maguire is ridiculous at the highest level.”

Now Merson regrets his comments, revealing he called Maguire on phone to apologise after getting his contact from Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers.

“I don't want to be right on that - I'd rather be wrong,” Merson told The Telegraph

“I want England to win the World Cup and Harry Maguire to get the winning goal.

“It was just my opinion. I rang up Brendan Rodgers and said, ‘Can you get me Harry Maguire's number?’ I didn't feel comfortable with myself.

“I needed to ring him and say, ‘I don't agree with the £80m but I shouldn't have said that and I'm sorry. I went a little bit too far.’

“He couldn't believe it. Probably thought it was a joke. I don't think he has had a fair crack. He's struggling and he's playing on the left when he's right-footed.”
