Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been given a suspended prison sentence of 21 months. A Greek court has found Maguire, 27, guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and several attempts of bribery.

Maguire says he has ‘immediately’ requested his lawyers appeal the verdict as he says that he, his friends and his family were the true ‘victims’.

The footballer was arrested with his brother and a close friend on Friday after a brawl began in a bar in Mykonos, Greece.

Maguire’s lawyers claimed his sister, Daisy, was injected with a ‘rape drug’ after having been approached by two Albanian men in a bar while Maguire and others were outside.

Maguire’s fiancee, Fern Hawkins, is said to have noticed Daisy’s condition and a group of male friends – including the footballer – went to help her in the bar.

The group arranged for a taxi to take the young woman to hospital but close friend of the Maguire’s Ashden Morley, 28, says a vehicle pulled their minibus over and roughly half a dozen men ‘physically pulled’ the group out of the car.

The prosecution later told the court that Maguire resisted arrest and yelled ‘f**k the police’ after he was in handcuffs.

Morley claims he and his friends were then beaten by batons and repeatedly stamped on by undercover officers. He said, given that the officers were undercover and had not made clear they were Greek police, the group feared they were caught up in a kidnap attempt.

It was also alleged the £190,000-a-week defender attempted to bribe officers. ‘Do you know who I am? I am the captain of Manchester United, I am very rich, I can give you money, I can pay you, please let us go,’ Maguire reportedly said.
