Harry Maguire feared for his life when he was arrested while on vacation in Greece. He had been given a suspended sentence after being involved in a violent incident in Mykonos. But he doesn’t feel guilty.
England international Harry Maguire “feared for his life” when he was arrested in Greece. According to the 27-year-old, the plainclothes police officers should not have identified themselves as such. “They often beat me on the legs,” said the captain of the British first division Manchester United of the BBC: “I was in a panic. I was afraid, afraid for my life.”
Maguire was sentenced to 21 months probation after being involved in a violent incident on the holiday island of Mykonos. The court found him guilty of repeated assault, attempted bribery, violence against government officials and libel. The professional’s lawyers had appealed on Wednesday.
His conscience was “clear”, said Maguire: “I’m sorry to put the fans and the club in this position, but I haven’t done anything wrong.”
