The Manchester United captain has been found guilty of charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery after a recent incident with police officers in Greece. Maguire has been handed a suspended prison sentence of 21 months and ten days, but Manchester United says his legal team will appeal the verdict.
Maguire’s legal team was denied a request for more time to prepare its case and verify evidence
Prosecution allege that once at the police station Harry Maguire 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”
A second police officer called by prosecution offers a similar story to the first. He claims that at the police station Harry Maguire said to him: “please, let me go, I am very rich, I can pay, I am the leader of Manchester United.”
