Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has been involved in an altercation while on holiday in the Greek island of Mykonos according to local police.
After Manchester United concluded its season with a Europa League semifinal defeat by Sevilla, Maguire traveled to Greek island of Mykonos on holiday with friends and family.
It is understood Maguire alongside his friends, “when the brawl was all sorted out, one of the two groups-with the football players-started verbally abusing officers”. This according to the police spokesman, Petros Vassilakis.
“There were several policemen there. At some point, one of the three members of the group-they were aged 27, 28, and 29 threw a swing at one of the policemen. A fight then ensued”.
“All of the three were arrested but during the effort to do so, the other two, including the football player, got violent also. They threw down at least two policemen, hit them with their fists, and kicked them”.
“I can’t tell you what they were telling us. All English swear words against the authorities and against the work of the police. All three, including the football player, are being held in custody, locked up in Mykonos cell”.
“One of the detainees then tried to offer money so that the trial against them would not be completed”.
“They will appear before a state prosecutor on the island of Syros later today to be charged with aggravated assault”.
