Maguire happy to ‘share true version of events’ after Greek trial

August 29, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Harry Maguire says he is pleased to have been able to “share the true version of events” concerning last week’s incident in Mykonos which led to his conviction for assault and bribery.

The Manchester United and England defender, 27, was found guilty by a Greek court on Tuesday and handed a suspended 21-month prison sentence but has subsequently lodged an appeal, which nullifies the verdict and means Maguire has no criminal record ahead of a full retrial.

He spoke to the BBC on Thursday about the incident, saying he was “scared for his life” and was concerned he and his family and friends were being kidnapped.

Which led to a cutting response from the prosecution’s lawyer.

On Friday he tweeted: “Thanks for everyone’s support over the last week, I’m pleased to have had my say and share the true version of events. Looking forward to getting on with life now and the season ahead with @ManUtd and @England.”
