Manchester United captain Harry Maguire arrested for attacking police

Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has been arrested on the Greek island of Mykonos for allegedly attacking police following a fight outside a bar.

The 27-year-old centre-half who is in Mykonos on holiday with his girlfriend Fern Hawkins was involved in an altercation with other British tourists last night.

When the officers tried to intervene, three men including the England international allegedly fought back physically and verbally while resisting arrest.

As a result, the three were detained in the early hours of Friday, August 21, and led away in handcuffs, according to Mail Online.

Manchester United said in a statement: ‘The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.

‘Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities. ‘At this time we will be making no further comment.’

Maguire joined United in an £80 million deal from Leicester City last summer and he is the most expensive defender in the world.

He played in all of United’s domestic games this season as the club finished third in the Premier League. Maguire was named club captain in January following Ashley Young’s transfer to Inter Milan.
