Manchester United captain Harry Maguire under arrest in Greece

Manchester United say they are aware of an alleged incident in Greece involving captain Harry Maguire.

The England defender, 27, has been arrested on the island of Mykonos following an alleged altercation with police, according to media reports.


The head of the press office for the Hellenic Police’s South Aegean region said that three men from England had been arrested on Mykonos yesterday.


The spokesman said there had been an altercation and an exchange of words with the police, and that the three men would appear before a prosecutor on the island of Syros later today.


Manchester United said in a statement today: “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.”


United players are taking time off after their Europa League exertions earlier this month. The club were eliminated by Spanish side Sevilla last Sunday.


Maguire’s girlfriend Fern Hawkins on Thursday posted a picture of herself and the player together, with the caption: “Holidays with you…”


Maguire is the world’s most expensive defender, having signed for United from Leicester last summer for £80m (€87m).


In his first season at Old Trafford, he was an ever-present in the Premier League, scoring one goal.
