The Manchester United captain was arrested after starring in a fight with the police.

This Saturday, it was learned that Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was provisionally released after an altercation in which he was accused of physically assaulting a policeman on the Greek island of Mykonos.

According to the press, the defender of the England National Team who was arrested last Thursday, is awaiting the trial for ‘assault’, which is scheduled for next Tuesday.

As reported by the European press, the defense attorney indicated that Maguire denied the accusations and hopes to fully collaborate with the authorities to resolve his case.

The 27-year-old defender is accused of aggression against officials, disobedience, bodily harm, insult and attempted bribery of an employee, according to local press reports.

On the other hand, the club informed that it will not take action on the matter until the judicial situation has a final verdict.
