MANCHESTER – Manchester United captain Harry Maguire reportedly appealed after convicted of assault, denied arrest and repeated attempts at bribery in court in Greece. The news was delivered direct from Man United through their official website.
As is known, Maguire was tried along with two other defendants on the island of Syros on Tuesday August 25, 2020 after being involved in an incident involving police while on vacation in Mykonos, Greece.
Maguire, who was in custody Thursday and Friday evenings, denies allegations that he committed acts of violence. In fact, however, he was still convicted of all charges by the three-headed minor offense court.
Now Maguire has also appealed through his legal team. Man United are also reportedly ready to help the England defender negotiate.

“Harry Maguire pleaded not guilty to all charges of wrongdoing against him and continues to hold firm allegations that he is innocent,” said a Man United statement on its official website on Wednesday (25/8/2020).
“It should be noted that the prosecutor confirmed the charges and presented their evidence the day before the trial, leaving little time for the defense team to digest and prepare. The motion to postpone the case has been denied,” the continued Man United statement continued.
“On that basis, Harry Maguire’s legal team, along with substantial evidence refuting the charges, will now appeal the verdict in order to enable a full and fair trial at a later date,” Man United’s official statement concluded.
