Manchester United’s Harry Maguire has been found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.
The 27-year-old – who had pleaded not guilty – was convicted of all charges against him by a court in Syros today (August 25).
Maguire, his brother and a friend were arrested last week on the Greek island of Mykonos after an altercation allegedly occurred and words were exchanged with a police officer who was attempting to break up a brawl.
According to the prosecution, when Maguire arrived at the police station, he said: “Do you know who I am? I am the captain of Manchester United, I am very rich, I can give you money, I can pay you, please let us go.”
Since being released from jail, the Man United captain has returned to England but has been represented by his lawyer in court in Syros.
News of Maguire’s guilty verdict comes hours after he was named in the England squad for the team’s upcoming games.
