Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has reportedly been arrested in Greece for a brawl.
The defender got involved in a confrontation With the local police and he’s set to spend two nights in a cell.
The player’s lawyers will now look to sort out the issues and bring him back to England.
Manchester United have confirmed that they have been in touch with their defender and the player is fully cooperating with the authorities right now.
It will be interesting to see if Manchester United decide to discipline the player on his return. His actions are certainly disappointing for his club and the country he represents as a footballer.
“The policemen that intervened were secret police, in plain clothes, so it is possible that Maguire and his friends did not understand that they were police officers,” one source close to the investigation claimed. “One of the men allegedly attempted to bribe the police when they were taken in the precinct.”
The Manchester United captain could face a prison term of up to two years for his actions and it will be interesting to see if his legal team can bail him out of the situation later.
