Leicester City have Harry Maguire model new away kit
After a summer spent reportedly having to fend off potential suitors, Leicester City had man of the moment Harry Maguire do the honours when it came to modelling their new 2018-19 away kit.
The central defender, who impressed for England at the World Cup, looked reassuringly awkward as he showed off the slick new white ensemble.
However, eagle-eyed viewers spotted something slightly amiss with Maguire's modelling debut, in that the 25-year-old appeared to don a pair of shin pads for the photo shoot.
Asked quite why he decided to take protective measures on the set, Maguire joked that he'd found himself on the wrong end of some rough treatment from the photographer.
Didn't expect the photographer to 2 foot tackle me tbh 🤷🏽♂️😂 https://t.co/zxCvVr9QpH— Harry Maguire (@HarryMaguire93) August 1, 2018
"Didn't expect the photographer to two-foot tackle me, [to be honest]," Maguire quipped in response.
All well and good, but that doesn't even begin to explain why his pads are so ridiculously small!
