Harry Maguire made his Manchester United debut on Sunday and fans are already singing his name, but the England international deserves a better song than his current La Bamba tribute.
And now a group of United fans have gone viral after adapting one of Gerry Cinnamon’s most-popular tracks.
A video was shared on Twitter featuring a group of Reds in Cape Verde singing a chant about Maguire to the tune of the Scottish singer-songwriter’s Belter anthem.
The chant goes: “Harry Maguire/Different from the rest/ Big slab-head from Sheffield/ He’s come to join the best/ He is the answer/ United’s no 5 at the back/ He’ll leave no striker alive/ Harry Maguire!”

A fan reached out to the singer on Twitter asking what he thinks of the rendition, but Cinnamon has yet to reply or give his thoughts.
@GerryCinnamon thoughts on this? Class….🔴⚪️⚫️👌🏻

Journalism student at the University of Salford, @Benjaminjamin, is taking responsibility for coming up with the chant. Do you think it will be a hit on the terraces this season?
Time will tell if it will be sung on the Stretford End, but the video shows a good few fans enjoying themselves and chipping in with a good old fashioned sing song.
