The fashion clothing retailer, H&M, are said to be considering a namechange for their brand, after it was revealed that many of their customers are under the impression that the company is run by the Manchester United and England central defender, Harry Maguire.

Hennes & Mauritz, based in Sweden, have more than 132,000 employees in 62 countries, and the business has an annual turnover of over $2.6bn. Company executives became concerned, however, after consumers started to assume that it was the former Sheffield United, Hull City and Leicester City man that was at the helm.

H&M boss, Ole Gunnar Larssonson, said:

"We have our image to protect, and an association with a big, lumbering, slabheaded defender with little or no turn of speed, and a tendency to bring players down in the box, is not what the company is looking for."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
