Details have emerged of the arrest of Manchester United captain Harry Maguire on the Greek island of Mykonos for assaulting police. They are cited by BBC Sport.
According to the publication, the athlete was in a company of 11 people. When they started to sort things out, the police arrived. At the time of his arrest, Maguire got into a scuffle with law enforcement officials and insulted them. “One of the group of Britons in which the football player was, swung at the police officer and started a fight,” said local police spokesman Petros Vassiliakis.
Newsit.gr reports that Maguire has been released from custody and will be able to return to England. The trial is scheduled to take place on August 25.
The footballer’s arrest was announced on August 21. It was noted that the defender resisted the security forces.
Maguire moved to MU in the summer of 2019 from Leicester for 96.2 million euros. He became the most expensive defender in the history of world football. Last season, the player played all 38 games in the English Premier League with the red devils, in which he scored one goal and made one assist.
